ON THE VIRTUE OF FAITH
Faith can play a powerful role in getting well. Psychiatrist Mark Ragins has proposed that there are several identifiable stages in the recovery of one’s mental health, similar in concept to the stages of death and dying identified by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. We will reflect on these concepts and how they might be helpful in your congregation, your faith and your life.
