Sunday Service Sept. 14:
Mental Illness – No Time for Shame or Blame
The sermon focuses on the seemingly never-ending problem of shame and blame associated with mental illness. We know with some certainty that 1 in 4 adults suffer from some form of mental illness. The key word is “illness” and the fact that we also know that a great deal of mental illness is caused by factors we cannot control. Other illnesses have come a long way regarding the removal of stigma – cancer, tuberculosis, diabetes, polio,and others are now being spoken of “in the open.” Tom will share information from his own experiences and those of his family regarding hesitancy, denial, and finally acceptance of mental illness.
