Approximately 1 in 5 people deals with some form of mental illness at some point during the course of a year. As people of faith, how do we handle mental health issues--whether they are our own, or those of people in our family or community? the old responses of "just pray" or "look on the bright side" or "God won't give you more than you can handle" are not helpful and they are also not faithful, ultimately. Let's talk about mental illness and how we continue to have faith in the midst of it.
Theology Thursdays On the Patio take place at Emmett's (on Brockway in downtown Palatine), and are an evening of learning and fellowship through conversation. Part small-group, part Bible Study, part fun, TOP is a great way to go deeper as we think about how our faith affects our lives. Food and beverages are available for all budgets, and we always learn something!
