Pastor Rick and Kay Warren has held an event at the Saddleback Church. Thousands of people gathered to hear a discussion about mental illness. This sort of event is long overdue and we wish there would be more churches to show concern about this issue, because it affects many families within the church.
According to BlackChristianNews.com, designed to encourage individuals living with mental illness, educate family members, and equip church leaders to provide effective and compassionate care to any who face the challenges of mental illness, The Gathering on Mental Health and the Church was a sold-out event, with more than 3,300 in attendance at the Saddleback Campus worship center and overflow rooms.
We will continue to keep Pastor Rick and Kay Warren in our prayers and sincerely hope this event on mental health issues will not be the last one.
