When was the last time you had an honest conversation?
Patrick Regan OBE asks the church to be braver.
Honesty over Silence the tour seeks to open up conversations around topics that many find difficult.
-Trusting God when life is painful
-Dealing with anxiety and depression
-Learning to look after ourselves
-Developing our character
-Living with thankful hearts even in tough seasons.
We’ll examine the strength in letting go of the need to be in control, and look at how we can stop comparing ourselves to others. We’ll look at how to live authentically and honestly as we grow into the people God has created us to be .
Through a variety of talks, testimony and music, we’ll learn, think and laugh together, and gain a better understanding of how to deal with life’s suffering and struggles.
Patrick Regan OBE is founder of the charity XLP, and author of several books including “When Faith Gets Shaken” .
He has personally recognised through some painful and stressful events in his own life , the power of ‘Honesty over Silence’.
There is a growing concern in today’s society, of the increase in mental and emotional health issues, which prevent us from experiencing life to the full . Whether we have yet to struggle, suffer personally, or wish to support those who do – the evening is relevant for us all.
Through such an event, we might start to create a culture in our churches and communities where “it’s OK not to be OK”.
