Sermon

On Mental Health Sunday in the United Church of Christ, Minister of Community Life Rachel Bauman shares her own story about the way mental health issues in her family affected her as she was growing up. She reflects on how silence made the situation even more difficult for all involved. And she invokes the healing stories from scripture that show how Jesus was saw and named illness and challenge, how he was willing to be interrupted and to break taboos, and how important restoration in the community was to restoring health.
