Preaching can encourage connections to foster healing for wounded souls.
The worth of support groups for people with specific needs cannot be overstated. But every congregation is made up of people who share certain universal needs—people who are wounded. Words That Heal, part of the Artistry of Preaching Series, approaches the topic not through the lens of science or psychology, but through the lens of the communal acts of preaching and worship. Using the stories of wounded biblical figures, the book showcases worship practices, sermons, and ministries that are actively engaged in supporting healing for those with wounded souls, i.e., all of us.
