#15: The Cost of Emotional Unhealth

April 23, 2023
Pastor Kenneth Price
Rob Kerschbaum

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality is a book by Pete Scazzero. The operating thesis is that emotional health and spiritual maturity are inseparable. It is not possible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. Ignoring our emotions is turning our back on reality. Listening to our emotions ushers us into reality. And reality is where we meet God. Join us as we discuss the topics presented in this book and how digging into them helps us to draw nearer to Christ.

Moments To Remember

  • "We say we don't want to be about the presentation or the show--and then we copy and paste the next most successful church's stuff. And in the meantime, God is probably wondering why we aren't ok with how He made us." -Rob Kerschbaum
  • "As people, we just all have a desire to be seen and known and cared for, and to feel like we belong. And when we live in a place of emotional unhealth, we don't see people as people, we see them objects or something to get through." -Kenneth Price
  • "If you think about what has helped change us away from sin struggles...it really was the moment that we started speaking that new identity to each other." -Rob Kerschbaum
  • "If I view my brokenness and my weakness and my failure as the determining factor of how beloved I am, then it's easy for me to live in shame...but there is this unlocking that happens when we get the realization that this sin struggle is not new. God is not wringing His hands, worried about my salvation, He is saying "I love you so much and I want you live in freedom from these things." -Kenneth Price



  • "Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." -1 Peter 5:8


  • "We don't have a [church] model, we just love Jesus." -Tim Keller
  • "If the voice inside your head is calling you anything other than beloved, it's not Jesus." -Bob Goff
