Sacred Wounds – Taking Responsibility

Posted by Ooltewah UMC on Sunday, July 29, 2018

Have you ever let a cut or scratch go without putting antibiotic cream or even just a band-aid on it? “It’ll heal itself.” you’d say and forget about it.

That’s what some people say when they are wounded by the church. They ignore the hurt that is inflicted on them, thinking it will just go away. But wounds, especially deep ones, don’t heal themselves. If left unobserved, they can fester, infect, and even grow bigger. And pretty soon, those wounds will start to affect other things in your life: your family, friends, work, etc.

The only way to start the recovery process is to take responsibility of your wounds. That’s not the same as taking the blame for them. Responsibility starts with acknowledging you are wounded, and then letting God begin your healing.

In this message, Pastor Dwight will help you navigate through hurt feelings and past wounds to a place of healing and peace in God.
