Comforting the Afflicted: Compassionate Care and Mental Health

09 November

Sharon is offering a continuing education opportunity for Stephen’s Ministers and anyone who is interested in exploring the topic of spiritual formation, mental illness, and knowing Jesus as the Man of Sorrows. Using themes and practices from her book Shades of Light, Sharon will speak not as a clinician or therapist but as a spiritual director who companions people in grief and loss. To register for the free event, contact Terri Blanch: terri.l.blanch[at]


Date: Tuesday, November 9, 6:30pm (coffee), 7-8pm presentation, followed by a booksigning

Location: Orchard Hill Church, Grand Rapids, MI
