Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Yes, you can find a spiritual home here. Have you been told that the Church is for you, only to discover that you are not welcome unless you fit a certain mold? Are you looking for healing -- physical, emotional, or spiritual -- but can't find the way into that 'hospital for sinners?' Are you desperately searching for mystery and meaning, but find only superficiality in the world? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then welcome home. In Strange Journey, Jessica Mesman Griffith and Jonathan Ryan write from their experiences with grief, addiction, divorce, death, abuse, and mental illness. Their stories reveal the pain of sin and struggle, and the stunning reality of grace in action. They promise to accompany the ailing, the questioning, and the wounded -- without fear, judgment, or cynicism -- on the way to clearing the overgrown paths to the source of true healing. Strange Journey speaks to those on the margins, to those who have ever felt alienated from God, and to those drawn to ritual and beauty and who are open to the unexpected. As Jessica and Jonathan have discovered, God never leaves us. Divine love reaches out to us and welcomes us home"--Back cover.
