Lutheran Theology and Its Application to Mental Health

Lutheran Theology and Its Application to Mental Health
Taught by Pastor Greg Lyon (Wisconsin Lutheran College)
January 9 - February 20, 2022
(replaced by the State of the Parish presentation on January 23)


Mental health awareness and mental health needs continue to rise. Does God’s Word speak to such challenges? The Christian counseling field is widely dominated by evangelical theology which some would argue leads to bad theology and bad psychology. Some within Lutheran circles have argued that the Lutheran voice has been far too faint in the psychological field. Leaning on the book Making Christian Counseling More Christ Centered by Dr. Rick Marrs, as well as other resources, this Bible study will give us an opportunity to discuss uniquely Lutheran theology and see its application to mental health challenges.
