The emotional and spiritual hurts and habits that come with living in a fallen world and the deep wounds that some people carry with them each day were the focus of attention October
17–20 when Harriet Hill, director of the Trauma Healing Institute of the American Bible Society,
led a seminar on “Healing the Wounds of Trauma: Help for Ourselves and Others.”
Dr. Hill and team members Karen Mahan of The Rivendell Institute, New Haven; and Mona Hennein of Life Focus Communications, Chicago; offered participants insights about how to use Scripture and basic mental health principles to find healing of emotional pain and equip them to help others.
Black Rock Church, Fairfield, CT; Christian Reformed World Missions; and St. John’s Episcopal Church, New Haven, cosponsored the OMSC seminar.
Michael (Kola) and Adeola (Funmi) Kehinde, residents from Nigeria who serve in Europe with Calvary Ministries (CAPRO USA), are organizing an OMSC Healing Group on two Saturdays in March to apply what they learned during the seminar.
