This article written by Mark Shaw is a timely word to the church about caring for those with self harm issues, specifically addictions who need biblical guidance and support through this difficult time in their lives. I find it timely because, now more than ever, we have people in our churches who are struggling with these issues. In addition on November 10th -11th the EIBCC will be hosting a weekend workshop entitled “Dealing With Self Harm Issues in the Church”. This workshop is for all the leaders in your church and will be focused on equipping them to know how to care for a shepherd those people who are struggling with addictions and self harm so we won’t ‘Punt on First Down”.
