Restoration: What is Passages?
The Silent Grief of Abortion
Thoughts of a past abortion haunt millions of women as they struggle with their memories and the deep spiritual wounding they've experienced long after the procedure is over.
It may be months or years before a woman feels she can talk to someone about her abortion. She doesn't know where to go for help and often feels she is the only one experiencing this kind of pain and shame from what she's done. Everything seems to make her think abortion was the best solution and now she is questioning the emptiness she is tormented with as she lives in a place of silent grief.
There is restoration. There is forgiveness, healing, peace and hope for the future. That is what Passages is all about.
Passages: Post-abortion Support Groups
Forgiven and Set Free is a 9 week recovery Bible study set in an environment that is non-judgemental and compassionate where women can begin their healing process. In these groups women are encouraged and supported as they seek to understand the circumstances, thoughts and emotions that surrounded their abortion(s). This is a safe place for them to be honest about their experiences and the emotional turmoil it has caused in their lives.
"My abortion was so long ago I didn't think I needed help. I hoped God had forgiven me but I hadn't realized I didn't forgive myself. After attending this safe, nurturing group I know that I am forgiven and set free." – Barbara
