In the past, To Heal the Heart invited various speakers to educate the faith audience on various issues surrounding abuse. In contemplating the next event, we recognized the importance of having an art event as poetry, music, skits, and testimonies can minister to the heart in a way that an educational forum cannot.
On October 13, 2012, we hosted a special event named To Heal the He[Art] where eleven poets read their pieces accompanied by music and painting to share their healing journey through the pain, masks of self-protection, and brokenness to a life of healing and hope. The following poems were presented at this event. These women share their vulnerability, yet also their strength and joy of Christ’s healing in their lives. We hope that this event was a time of encouragement and worship to the power of Christ’s healing.
