GREENVILLE —EUM Church will offer a workshop on Saturday, Oct. 29 based on the book Wounds that Heal by author Dr. Stephen Seamands.
“God is not distant or aloof. On the contrary, through the ministry of Jesus, God enters our painful situations to bring healing and redemption. Balancing sound biblical exposition with sensitive pastoral care,” said Seamands. “The book examines the profound implications of Jesus’ crucifixion for our healing and restoration.”
“Because Jesus experienced abuse, shame and rejection, he understands the hurts we experience today. And his response to pain and suffering gives us hope that we too can experience forgiveness and new life. Filled with real-life stories of people’s brokenness and healing, Wounds That Heal offers comfort for our wounded souls. Ultimately, we take heart that God not only understands our pain but has done something about it. Encounter here the promise that the wounds of Jesus are wounds that heal.”
Dr. Seamands is presenting a workshop based on this book that demonstrates how God enters our lives through Jesus’ crucifixion—-and brings healing and redemption. This workshop is an event in EUM’s Engage Discipleship Summit, a discipleship ministry of the church. It will take place at EUM Church, 1451 Sater Street, Greenville, Ohio on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $20 per person.

Dr. Stephen Seamands currently serves as professor of Christian Doctrine at Asbury Theological Seminary. Prior to assuming a teaching position at the seminary in 1983, he pastored United Methodist churches in Linwood, Florence, and Elmer in southern New Jersey for 11 years. He is known for gracefully merging the classical and the practical. His courses on theology and doctrine are taught with a scholar’s mind and a pastor’s heart.
The son of missionary parents, Seamands was born and grew up in India. In addition to teaching and working with seminary students, he is actively engaged in leading seminars and retreats and conducting spiritual renewal events in local churches across the U.S. He also has a deep concern for the spiritual needs of pastors and Christian leaders.
Seamands has developed a particular interest in the areas of emotional healing, spiritual warfare, and intercessory prayer. His workshops, “The Healing Power of Forgiveness,” and “Overcoming Barriers to Receiving God’s Love,” which he has presented at scores of churches and conferences, have ministered deeply to the brokenness in people’s lives.
