Resilience in Life and Faith: Finding Your Strength in God
Beginning September 14 at 7:00pm in McAdams Hall
Led by Dr. Julia Mitchell
Nationally, rates of depression and anxiety among children and adolescents are alarming. The American Academy of Pediatrics has declared emotional health among youth a national emergency. Many adults are also suffering emotionally from the difficulties from the past few years.
ACEs, known as Adverse Childhood Experiences endured during childhood, can lead to a lifetime of health complications if not buffered by protective factors. The number one protection is a supportive, stable, caring, loving adult in a child’s life. We can each play that influential role.
Resilience is important in thriving in the midst of adversity, and thankfully, resilience can be developed and strengthened over time. We can all learn skills that help us cope in a healthy way with life’s changes, disappointments, and even tragedies.
As Christians, we espouse a Hope and have access to a Peace that the world cannot manufacture.
So how does our faith impact our resilience? And how can we, as Christians, help with this national emergency?
Join us this fall as we wrestle together with these questions.
Resilience in Life and Faith: Finding Your Strength in God will be a resource we read together to guide our discussions.
