What a cool church! Racquel

"It took me a long time to be able to talk about my mental illness to ANYONE, let alone fellow Christians. My church is wonderfully welcoming, supportive, and loving to any man, woman, or child, especially those that are hurting."

I could have written the above, Racquel. It took me forever to talk to anyone about my struggles--and I still am limited in what I say to others. My church is accepting and loving. I get such joy in helping others, and don't condemn other people who are hurting in whatever area of life they have their struggles. But it seems much easier to give love and help than receive it.

Btw, it sounds like your church really has a niche! Would that more churches were active in showing Jesus' love to others and not just telling about it.
