Renewal | The Path To Recovery
  • 1 - The Power of a Story

    Things kept in the darkness stay in the darkness, but when brought into the light, somehow seem to lose their sting. There’s a power that comes in sharing parts of yourself with trusted people. Somehow, when the hidden parts of ourselves are said aloud, they hold less power over us. Even crazier,...

  • 2 - Renewal Starts With Reality

    Pretending that everything in life is fine is an art form. It’s also a dangerous trap. When everything is not fine, we must face reality. To allow healing in our lives, we must be open to confrontation and change, and be humble enough to make amends. Renewal begins with reality.

  • 7 - The Spiritual Practice of Lament

    Stories and songs of lament in the Bible make room for our own emotions, recovery, and grief. Practicing lament in our own lives allows us to truly feel the deeper avenues of what it means to be human. Some emotions, even the hardest ones, give us no choice but to feel.

  • 8 - Healed People Heal People

    Love of God leads to love of others, and love of self. When we draw nearer to God, when we repent, when we make amends, when we surround ourselves with a community of believers, we heal the broken parts of our own selves, but also, the brokenness of people around us.
