Member Care: “My own journey with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) has been a significant part of my life. Approximately 8 years ago I spiraled downward into an intense battle with acute anxiety. This dark night of the soul lasted approximately four months, and I was unsure how to escape the emotional, mental, and spiritual anguish. Sleeping an average of 3 hours a night, I would find myself calling my spiritual mentor in the middle of the night to help me work through panic attacks. Questions plagued my mind. How could an ordained minister be battling this kind of issue? What does this say about my walk with God? Did this make me unfit for ministry? Feeling like “damaged goods,” I began to learn some things that reshaped my understanding about intimacy with God, the role of shame, and the way forward in navigating what transformation looks like.” Rev. John Comstock

This webinar, led by Rev. John Comstock, will take a look at the biblical narrative of shame and its impact on intimacy with God. As a part of the biblical narrative, the webinar will take a cursory look at the role of family in shaping our understanding of the relational aspect of the Trinity. We will conclude with a practical way to help people who are stuck in emotional wounding.
