Whether the struggle is personal or you’ve experienced the pain of watching a loved one, virtually no life remains untouched by the problem of addiction. What can we do? What should we say? How do we even think about lives that are spinning out of control from seemingly unstoppable urges?
Our working theology of addictions is often a mixture of messages we have heard from pop psychology, AA, and pieces of Scripture. Some talk about addiction using the language of disease. Others offer simplistic explanations of sin and bludgeon addicts with the demand to just “stop it.” This conference will explore both the physical and spiritual components of addiction and how to navigate them carefully as Christians.
Follow along with these resources as we unpack these issues and learn how our sense of helplessness and desperate need in the face of such problems can become just the thing to drive us to the redemption and power found through Jesus.
