CROSSROADS: A PEOPLE OF HEALING
All who walk upon this earth are free to travel wherever their heart may desire. However, every day one is confronted in one way or another with the harsh reality that this journey called life can be very difficult. For along the road one can be met by poor health, physical disabilities, broken relationships, traumatic pasts, and/or financial distress (to name just a few). These unsolicited strangers attempt to keep one from enjoying life’s true riches such as love, joy, peace of mind, and friendship. Rather than exploring the limitless wonders that this life has to offer, the past, the disabilities, and the present circumstances diminish their view and sets the course by which a life’s traveler will live their lives. The burdens that they carry leave them emotionally, physically, and spiritually exhausted and in want. Inevitably at some point they come to place of choice – a crossroads. Do they continue to live the life they are living or do they choose to live the life that God meant for them to live? Shall they struggle and experience a life without joy or do they set their sights on a path of
renewal, restoration, and relevancy? This place of choice can be the defining moment that either catapults them into living the abundant life or the deepest of despair. The decision needed to be made is both frightening and exciting. However it is a decision that each person must make alone. For those that choose to embrace the life they have always wanted there is a renewed hope and a courage that rises up to face the challenges that await. Though crossroads can be a place that lead to great healing, it is not an easy path to walk because it requires going against all that one has come to trust and know as familiar. The journey beyond the crossroad is not one that a person should venture on alone. This is a time that others should be sought out to help bring guidance, direction, and insight to our quest.CROSSROADS: A PEOPLE OF HEALING
Crossroads Healing Centre, is more than a place. It is people who offer caring, non-judgmental professional counselling services to persons from all walks of life who have found themselves at a crossroads. Our mission is to “Balance emotional, physical and spiritual health through a process of reconciliation, restoration and relevancy; ultimately to restore dignity and purpose to life.”
Our commitment is to provide professional, compassionate, and confidential counselling and educational services to anyone seeking help. We will not refuse anyone services regardless of their ability to pay. In 2017 we were able to provide $105,000.00 in fee subsidies for individuals and families of Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. These subsidies are available through a grant received by the Family and Community Support Services of the City of Lethbridge, various community foundations, churches, corporate and individual donors. We want to ensure that all people have access to the necessary resources that will enable them to improve the quality of their lives and to help them achieve the successes that they so deserve. The challenge is to raise the funds so that we can offer subsidies for these services.
When you find yourself or know of someone who is at a crossroads, remember that there is a place where you can find the help you need to get you on the path towards the abundant life. That place is Crossroads Healing Centre.
