Turning toward our pain is counterintuitive but the heart of Christianity is that the way to life is through death. @petescazzero
We do great damage to ourselves and others when we don’t deal with our grief. The only way to healing is through it. Jesus gave us that example. Pete Scazerro put it this way: “Turning toward our pain is counterintuitive but the heart of Christianity is that the way to life is through death.”
Pete Scazzero is a pastor who has spent a lot of time thinking and writing about the role of emotional health in the church. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality is a profoundly important book for modern Christianity.
