EVENTS AROUND THE COMMUNITY:
Celebrate Recovery is not meeting during this time, but please feel free to call Cheryl (leave a message for her to call you back) 406.351.1525
Greetings, everyone 🙂 This is Lillie Jones. I wanted to share a bit on Celebrate Recovery (“CR”), particularly because this season of social isolation may afford some free time for self-reflection. Quietness and alone time can bring to light personal hurts, habits, or hang-ups. God offers freedom from our burdens (Romans 6:14 Sin is no longer your master … instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace); and CR offers a process toward God’s intended freedom and healing from emotional hurts and hang-ups.
In CR “Denial” is a main topic— my tendency to ignore and hide issues or inadequacies that embarrass me. But I can’t make a problem go away by pretending it doesn’t exist (denial). Jeremiah 6:14 You can’t heal a wound by saying it isn’t there. Celebrate Recovery helps me sort out my current situation as well as where I’ve come from in order to discover who God created me to be.
A lot of people think that CR is for people with addictions—actually only a fraction of attendees come to CR because of an addiction. More common issues include dysfunctional relationships, divorce, rejection, abandonment, insecurity, co-dependency, unemployment, grief, abuse, loneliness. Sometimes I don’t even know what my issue is, I just feel that something is wrong and I can’t seem to fix it.
Through my inadequacies (actually… my humanness) I have hurt other people along my life; and other people have hurt me—sometimes unintentionally and maybe intentionally. (All have sinned and fall short of God’s standard. Romans 3:23) From those hurts I’ve developed coping mechanisms and self-protection, maybe I’ve developed anxiety and insecurity. In some cases, coping mechanisms deteriorate into bad habits and various addictions.
When we reach the time of social gathering again, all are welcome at Celebrate Recovery. The program is no “quick fix.” We methodically and intentionally work through the process. Our intention is to seek God’s direction with accountability partners while working toward the freedom and abundant life promised in Scripture. If you’re anxious to get started or learn more before meetings can resume, please call Dan or Lillie Jones 719-539-4182.
Would you be willing to help our Cuban pastors to be more self-sustaining? They own a wonderful piece of land that they can use as a farm, but have no means to develop it. We are raising money to go towards the purchase of piglets. Pork is the main staple in Cuba and always in demand. $25 can buy a piglet that will help sustain this ministry which is spreading the gospel in Cuba. If you would like to invest in what God is doing in Cuba, make your check payable to Cuba for Christ and mail it to: Austin Campbell, PO Box 1354, Buena Vista, CO 81211. If you want more information contact Austin or Kristen Campbell at (719) 293-5075 or email@example.com.
