Filling the Void

“No one can convince me we aren’t gluttons for our doom” goes the line from the great Indigo Girls song “Prince of Darkness.” This morning we’ll look at what that can really mean, as we explore the seduction and shame associated with addictive behaviors. Focusing in particular on eating disorders, we’ll look at what in our society and ourselves sends some of us, especially young women, down these paths. We’ll look also at what answers and healing are available to help us contend with these challenges, including answers and healing available to us when we look to our faith, our religious community, our teachings, and our lived experience.

Young people begin in their classrooms and worship in Chapel.
