Special Event on Theology, Medicine & Culture
What Do We Really Need?
Cultivating Connection & Purpose in an Anxious Age
Tuesday, October 17, 7:00pm
Guest speaker, Dr. Warren Kinghorn
at First Presbyterian Church (4815 Franklin Pike, Nashville)
Rates of depression and anxiety are rising, especially among young people. Sometimes the reasons are clear and close to home, sometimes not. But do diagnostic labels help or harm? And how can churches and Christian communities contribute to healing?
Join psychiatrist and theologian Warren Kinghorn for a conversation about the roots of anxiety and depression, what our hearts long for, and who God is calling us to be together.
Dr. Kinghorn is a psychiatrist whose work centers on the role of religious communities in caring for persons with mental health problems and on ways in which Christians engage practices of modern health care. He has written on the moral and theological dimensions of combat trauma and moral injury, the moral and political context of psychiatric diagnosis, and the way that St. Thomas Aquinas’ image of the human as wayfarer might inform contemporary practices of ministry and mental health care.
Registration is required for this free event.
This event is offered in partnership with First Presbyterian Church and Duke Divinity School’s Initiative of Theology, Medicine, and Culture.
