Understanding the Power of Community to Heal Trauma
George A. Wood
When it comes to Christ-centered recovery, we, the church, have work to do.
Our legalistic, box-checking, one-size-fits-all programs produce astonishingly high failure rates--which means far too many people are left to fight addiction, mental health problems, and suicidal thoughts on their own.
This begs some critical questions of the church:
- Do we really believe transformational recovery and healing is possible?
- Do we really have the right systems and structures to support struggling people?
- Do we really carry a kingdom responsibility to restore people gently?
- Do we really take time to ask God what more He would have us do in the recovery space?
This book is for anyone who can't offer a resounding yes and amen to each of those questions.
With hearts that beat for those struggling with addictions and mental health issues, authors George A. Wood and Brit Eaton present:
- A critical reframing of the word "recovery" and an invitation to answer God's call for more spirit-led, trauma-informed ministry
- Deeper exploration into the origins of addiction, mental health problems, and suicidal thoughts--and the church's responsibility to bring God's healing
- Powerful supernatural testimonies and stories of hope, healing, and life restoration as a result of embracing
- Practical strategies to help Christ-centered recovery leaders bridge the gap between spiritual and scientific communities to better serve struggling people
- A loose and helpful framework for embracing
- Inspiration for recovery leaders to love and lead in a more inclusive, sacrificial, and Christlike manner while maintaining healthy self-care
The goal of
is to help the church--and the world--see recovery through a grace- laced, gospel lens. Some say recovery is the civil rights movement of our generation because believe it or not, recovery is for everyone. And if that statement bothers you? Recovery might be for you, too.
Every single one of us has some trauma or issue from our past that may still be affecting our life today. This book offers readers a not-so-subtle nudge to go deeper in the recovery space for a transformative encounter with Father God to heal from those wounds and lead the promised land life He has planned for us.
