Fall Theme = Mental Health Through Story Telling
9:45 - 10:45
The theme for the Fall Semester is mental health and spiritual health.  Central to our lives is how we manage our thinking, our emotions, our decision making and how we negotiate the mental processing of those we come in contact with.  Although there are clear physiological processes that must be managed, mental health is tied to spiritual health.  The Church is central to these healing processes.  Although we can only brush the surface of these issues through storytelling, we hope to stimulate an exploration of how the Pilgrim Community can be the environment that loves and supports mental health and spiritual challenges experienced by its members and those we touch.
