Stinking Thinking
Led by Rev. Phil Merten (Institutional Ministries)
August 2-16, 2020


For over 30 years, Chaplain Merten has walked alongside people in their process of recovery from addiction to chemicals like alcohol and narcotics. He’s come to appreciate their labor of questioning and relearning the thought patterns they’ve gotten accustomed to. One recovery slogan says, “My best thinking got me where I am now.” It’s really the same work God gives all his people: to “demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God” and “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5). We’ll look at some of the ways “stinking thinking” shows up and at the grace God gives to give us a new way of thinking.
