Mental Health Mission Moments is an ecumenical resource to help clergy and lay persons or with small groups to address mental health issues in the context of the Sunday morning worship service. These nine 2-3 minute DVD segments can also be used with small groups or classes to generate discussion. Each segment presents an issue related to the experiences of mental health, puts a face to the issue, and ends with a message of hope. The accompanying Resource Guide includes sermon starters, liturgical material, additional scriptural references and other resources to help educate congregations about mental illness.
The Resource Guide is a starting point. You are encouraged to use parts of this material, rearrange it, adapt it to your setting or write your own. One sermon starter is given for each segment, but other scripture references may also be used. Where applicable, texts from the Common Lectionary are noted.
