Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM CST
Event Description:
Soul Shop for Congregations Ministering to those impacted by desperation WHAT IS SOUL SHOP? The Soul Shop™ Movement exists due to the needs of desperately hurting people to be heard, noticed, and seen within their faith communities. Soul Shop™ provides training and support to faith community leaders. At any given time, 1 in 17 adults (according to Living Works) and 1 in 6 youth (CDC Report) are considering suicide. Suicide reaches into people’s lives in multiple ways: through the death or suicide attempt of a loved one, through their own former or current suicidal thinking, or through worries about others going through hard times. At this moment, 1 out of 2 people in most congregations are personally impacted by the reality of suicide. Many congregations experience deaths to suicide among their own members, skyrocketing the impact to 100% of the congregation. Suicidal thinking can leave family and friends feeling as desperate as the suicidal person. If we are going to help those impacted by suicidal desperation, we need to change our attitudes.
