Suicide is now the leading cause of death among young adults 18-34, and the fourth-leading cause of death among the middle-aged. Just as a computer’s hardware determines its foundational capabilities and its software determines how it interfaces with the world, humans’ hardware is tied to our biology and our software dictates how we relate to others and ourselves. Together, these parts of our identity determine our functionality, limitations, and possibilities. We become the story we have decided to live inside. When Jesus said, "I have come to set captives free," He meant that He came to "de-bug" our programming. Jesus invites us to partner with Him to bring to the surface and then move past our debilitating bugs. Join us to learn how.
