Christ on the Psych Ward
David Finnegan Hosey

Saturday 2:00pm | Bridge

“”Christ on the Psych Ward”” is a story-sharing based on my experiences of mental illness, recovery, and faith. In telling my story, I weave together threads of personal experience, spiritual reflection, and ministry praxis. I will also share music inspired by my experiences. By “”going first”” with my own story of mental illness and mental health, I will open up the opportunity for other participants to share their own stories of mental health struggles in their personal lives, family lives, and/or communities of faith.
