Recovery is Possible
Some wonder how God’s ordained and consecrated could be in need of such services. The individuals who serve God and the Church are people first, and they are vulnerable to illness and disease in the same way any other person is. (Addiction is a disease of the brain.) This truth has been the impetus of the mission and ministry of Guest House since 1956.
We welcome these individuals warmly and are committed to walking with them on their recovery journey.

If our life of faith has no sense of joy, if it’s mostly a burden, then maybe we need to examine our understanding of God. This was the problem of the people in today’s gospel. In their own way, they were deeply religious. Their criticism of Jesus was based upon a misconception of God. Jesus believed and taught that God was a wise and loving Father who wanted his children to experience life at its best. It was a revolutionary concept of God. No one had ever dared believe this before and I often wonder if we even believe it today.
