This is week 30 of Celebrate Recovery here at Hydesville Church. It's been a wild ride. We have seen scores of new faces but our core group remains small. We have seen miraculous changes in the lives of the participants. I love the 'realness,' honesty and humility of Celebrate Recovery. There is just something powerful in knowing we are not alone in our life struggles. It is like a warm balm to a hurting and scraped up soul to have real people - spiritually broken people - offer non-judgmental encouragement and support on our own life's journey. The reality of Jesus Christ, expressed within this group, is that He is not a distant figure from the Bible, but a true friend today and a savior whose love, guidance and compassion is relevant to every struggle and triumph we have in life.
I like Celebrate Recovery, because it is the love of Jesus - with a human touch.
