What is Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

Engaging God with Your Whole Self
Can you be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature? Can you be spiritually healthy while remaining emotionally unhealthy?  Based on the books The Emotionally Healthy Church and Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (EHS) by Peter Scazzero you are invited into the process of integrating emotional and spiritual health.  

What to expect

There are three components to this series: 1) A Sunday morning group experience (main teaching); 2) an individual daily experience; and, 3) a small group component. There are resources, as follows, for each component.

  • 1) Emotionally Healthy Spirituality - the main resource for this series.
    A copy can be purchased for $10 at the NewDay Office
