Upcoming Sermon Series: Healing Spiritual Wounds

Our next sermon series is inspired by Carol Howard Merritt’s book, Healing Spiritual Wounds: Reconnecting with a Loving God After Experiencing a Hurtful Church.

HSW

“While we go to church to affirm our deepest ideals, too often people receive spiritual wounds rather than nurture. Whether these wounds are due to the sting of sexism, homophobia, religious politics, or abuse, the challenge becomes finding healing and reconnecting with a loving and nurturing God going forward. For Presbyterian minister and author Carol Howard Merritt, this is precisely her calling: to help us recover a loving and life-giving faith in the wake of suffering at the hands of the church.” – From the back cover

Sermons will reflect on themes in the book; interested participants might wish to read the chapters corresponding to each week’s sermon in order to more deeply engage the material.
