We welcome Chris Cole as our preacher on Mental Health Sunday. Chris is the host of the Waking Up Bipolar podcast and author of The Body of Chris: A Memoir of Obsession, Addiction, and Madness. Inspired by his journey of spiritual unfolding and mental health challenges. Chris practices life coaching from a heart-centered transpersonal orientation, combined with years of service to those navigating the intimate terrain of transformative crisis.
Following the service there will be a one hour panel presentation on the role of spirituality in recovery from mental health challenges.
Chris Cole will be joined by Anne Weiher, chair of the Mental Health Ministry of First Congregational Church, Rabbi Deborah Bronstein, Rabbi Emeritis, Congregation Har HaShem and Bill Forbes, psychologist in private practice and member of First Cong.
This will be an opportunity to ask questions not only of Chris but of the other panelists.
