The 2013 Fall Lecture Week at CRCDS
Many people are in need of healing today: veterans returning from service, individuals recovering from addiction and all who are experiencing suffering or loss. Pastors and church communities know first hand the curative role of pastoral care, but what possibilities can spirituality offer mainstream social care services? "Tending the Wounded Spirit" explores this question through an engaging series of events that includes lectures, community worship,discussion, art and film, inviting attendees to gain a deeper insight into the intersection between spirituality and healing.
