Healthy boundaries

Posted on

A three-member panel (Pastor John Young, Amy Minnich and Charlie Boyer) share their perspectives on the importance of scripturally based personal boundaries. They touch on three key aspects in particular:

  • We are responsible for setting our boundaries … nobody can do it for us.
  • We have to establish them with the right motives for boundaries to be helpful to ourselves and to others.
  • We have to protect our boundaries (while continuing to love those who won’t respect them).
Amy, Pastor John and Charlie share about boundaries.

Here are Pastor John’s notes for the Boundaries session:

Recovery and restoration

Posted on

The theme of the 1/27 Sunday Worship service was “recovery.” Pastor John, in his message, shared three keys to successful recovery … be it from substance abuse or any kind of addictive reliance on anything other than God in dealing with what troubles us … 1) recognize that there are underlying spiritual issues, 2) know recovery cannot be a solo effort but requires a supportive community, and 3) it requires working through the process of repentance, forgiveness and healing.

Also as part of the service, there were four testimonies of church family members (two of whom are addicts: one clean for about 100 days and the other for a year) and sharing from Amy Minnich about an upcoming course on healthy spirituality.
