Serving Mentally Ill Christians

More Like a Hospital

“The church is not a select circle of the immaculate, but a home where the outcast may come in. It is not a palace with gate attendants and challenging sentinels along the entrance-ways holding off at arm’s-length the stranger, but rather a hospital where the broken-hearted may be healed, and where all the weary and troubled may find rest and take counsel together.”

James H. Aughey

  1. Yes! Absolutely! My church has been described that way by the weary and broken. We are blessed to be a blessing. We pour out what we have been given….only to be filled again.
