CHRISTIAN REFLECTIONS ON ADDICTION
(#4 - Spirituality)
This reflective evening will explore the epidemic of addiction in our society and our responsibility as followers of Christ in responding to those who are suffering. It is an educational, informational, and inspirational evening that is intended for everyone, including the afflicted and their families and friends, counselors, nurses, priests, deacons, etc., those in the criminal justice system, educators, and anyone who would like to learn more to become part of a solution to the current epidemic.
Each evening covers one aspect of the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model of addiction.
This evening includes an examination of our spiritual nature and how and why spirituality is an important part of the recovery process. Although the full benefit is achieved if you attend all four evenings, each evening is an independent presentation. Please join us even if you cannot attend all four evenings.
Oftentimes the use of a substance is a misguided attempt to quench a spiritual thirst or craving. We will explore the missing piece to the puzzle of our lives, the God-shaped hole within each of us, and the only real way that this void can be filled. This week we will discuss not one, but three virtues: FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE.
