Read full description of the books:
When someone in your church has surgery, how do people respond? Flowers are ordered; Cards are sent; A prayer chain is started; Hospital visits are made; Meals are delivered. Soon life returns to normal... But what happens to the person who never gets well?
1 in 3 people in the US have a chronic illness and over 26 million live in chronic pain. Who is reaching these people with the hope that they can find in Jesus Christ? Your church likely reaches out to people who are home-bound. You probably send meals to those who need them.
But it takes more than just casseroles to have an effective chronic illness/pain ministry. With over 4235 chronic illnesses being diagnosed each day, we can't afford to ignore the invisible suffering happening in our church any longer.
This book will equip your church with the skills to know...
= How to reach out to people who live with chronic illness or pain in ways that will show them God's love; what is a person in pain searching for?
= How to know what to say and not to say to someone hurting.
= What you should pray for: healing or God's will?
= How to get chronically ill people actively involved in your congregation and encourage them to reach out to others who are hurting.
= How to you start a HopeKeepers chronic illness support group/bible study in your church.
