Are you stressed out? Grieving? Feeling ‘down’ or ‘down-hearted’? Do you suffer from chronic or acute illness or pain? Addictions? Anxiety? Do you want to strengthen your spirituality and connection to the sacred in your life? Do you want to feel healthy and able to live life in a well-balanced, wholesome way?
Jesus called the twelve together and gave them power and authority…and sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal. (Luke 9: 1,2)
After this Jesus appointed seventy others and sent them on in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go. He said to them “…cure the sick who are there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’” (Luke 10: 1, 9)
The healing power of God’s Unconditional Love was made available through Jesus to us all to bring wholeness and balance to our lives, and to the lives of the people around us. This healing energy assists us to bring health and well-being to our spiritual, mental, emotional and physical lives. It complements and enhances our other forms of healing that we access through our doctors and other medical personnel. The healing session is a calm and gentle application of specific techniques on the natural energy systems of our bodies.
We offer this healing experience to anyone who desires it in a safe and confidential setting through a Drop-in time each month, as well as through individual appointment times to meet the needs of those who cannot come to the monthly sessions. There is no fee for this service. It is offered as a regular ministry of our church. However, if recipients wish they may make a tax-receiptable donation to support this ministry of the Campbell River United Church.
The Healing Pathway is a programme in The United Church of Canada that engages people in the healing ministry that was initiated by Jesus and continued by his followers over the centuries. There are groups functioning in congregations and community groups across Canada, and in some areas of Guatemala.
Campbell River United Church, as well as other congregations on Vancouver Island, in BC, and in other parts of Canada, offer Healing Pathway workshops and retreats where people who are interested in this ministry learn to access the healing power of God’s Unconditional Love for their own healing, and perhaps to offer that healing Unconditional Love to family, friends and others. .
Our practitioners follow an established Code of Ethics and Boundaries, generally work in pairs as was set out in the biblical stories, and are accountable to the congregation or community group with whom they work. Some of us also offer this work in conjunction with our local hospital, care homes, and hospice after meeting their criteria to act as volunteers in their respective settings.
We invite you to come and experience this Unconditional Love of God in your life.
For appointment times, please contact the church office at 250-286-0431. You will then be put in touch with an available Healing Pathway Practitioner to complete the specific arrangements.
