Covenant Baptist Church Presents "Truth Telling About Depression," a special workshop featuring Rev. Brian Shields...
Rev. Brian Shields, Staff Chaplain, The Cleveland Clinic
In June, 2017, Covenant sponsored a three day community event, in collaboration with the Cleveland Clinic - "Healthy Temples: Supporting Healthy Minds, Bodies and Spirits." Over a three day period, participants engaged in classes covering topics on healthy eating, depression, the importance of rest and relaxation for our overall health and well-being.
Participants were so engaged and inspired, in particular, by the workshop on depression, that many requested a follow-up session! Per their request, we have invited Rev. Brian Shields, Cleveland Clinic Staff Chaplain to come back to lead a workshop entitled, "Truth Telling About Depression."
