Each of us experiences pain. That’s part of being human. Though time really does help to heal wounds, nothing can erase our memories. In the four-week study A Crazy, Holy Grace, by Frederick Buechner, you’ll learn about the healing power of those memories and about how to use past graces from God to close old wounds. Study questions and prompts, which are included for each of Buechner’s essays, lead your group into discussions about letting go, the power of hidden secrets, rising from the ruins, and listening for the quiet voice of God.
In this session titled The Gates of Pain, Michael Poteet discusses how Buechner models engaging the Bible with our full range of emotions and how God can bring value our of our pain. This session features a clip from Buechner's sermon, The Stewardship of Pain, where he discusses the parable of the talents and how pain can transform into healing.
