Saturday, October 3
8:45 a.m. - Noon in the Sanctuary
The way we live out the Christian life together as we follow Jesus, loving God and experiencing transformation through the power of the Holy Spirit actually brings about changes in our brain. Psychiatrist Curt Thompson will lead us in a consideration of how the way we think and relate to others leads to deeper, closer connections with God and the people we love.
Thompson’s ground-breaking work, Anatomy of the Soul, focuses on the integration of spiritual formation and psychological development. In his newly released book, The Soul of Shame, Dr. Thompson explores shame’s pervasive nature and it’s neurobiological roots, providing important spiritual tools to dismantle shame that lead to healing and restoration.
This event is free and open to the public; no registration is required.
