End The Stigma With-In The Church

icuTalks
 

 

 

 

Last month I had the opportunity to speak at icuTalks on the topic of Ending Stigma in the Church.

I was incredibly honored and took all 26 of my 25 minutes to contrast the reconciling nature of God with the retributive lens through which much of the church perceives Him. If you’re curious about the new book I am finally wrapping up, Leaving & finding Jesus, this is a good introduction.

icuTalks creates a safe and vulnerable environment through an authentic sharing of God’s redeeming love of life. They are a mental health ministry that provides a stage for everyday people to share about God’s redemptive love. The theme for the evening was Ending the Stigma with-in the Church and I was honored to share the stage with Heather Bise and Cody Suddreth.

icuTalks is led by my friend, Kim Honeycutt, who is a psychotherapist and trauma recovery consultant. Kim provides individual services that are open to all seeking emotional healing. Kim was rated second in a “best list” of psychotherapists by Charlotte Fitness Lifestyles. You can learn more about them at www.icutalks.com

MICHAEL MCELYEA / You Love Me, But You Don’t Know Who I Am

You love me, but you don’t know who I am. Those are the words God spoke to Michael several years ago and it took him on a journey into measureless love, grace, and union with an always good, never leaving, no distance or separation, Triune God. With grace and joy the conversation dove into the two greatest lies on the planet, Penal Substitution and Eternal Conscious Torment.

Dream Like An Old Man: Part Four, Heaven On Earth

A true dream, one that is birthed in the heart of “old men dreamers,” carries with it authority and power. Only a person who has experienced the death of vision, who has nailed vision to the cross, has access to the power of resurrection. When he dreams again, he dreams the dreams of heaven. And a dream that’s birthed in heaven has power to transform earth, it can change a family, a neighborhood, a city, a nation, it grows exponentially and has eternal significance.

You are the fruit of His suffering; you are the glorious resurrection generation. You are His will done on earth as it is in heaven. You are His pleasure, His beloved.

JOHN CROWDER / TRINITARIAN THEOLOGY

John Crowder pulls from the different streams of the church to talk about Christilogical Trinitarian theology, grace, union, contemplative practice, intimacy, and mystical Christianity. John and Jason dive into the Cross, Western atonement theories, and the religious industry built upon separation; how Jesus is healing the human race. John describes a relationship with a person, Christ. He invites us to embrace mystery so we might discover that God looks like Jesus.
