Healing Oils Workshop Offered At St. Alban's Episcopal Church

Thursday, February 21, 2013

The Rev. Mark Bigley, Rector of St. Alban's Episcopal Church, Hixson is presenting a Lenten workshop on Healing Oils each Wednesday at 6:45 p.m. at the church 7514 Hixson Pike.  

Soup and salad supper is served at 6 p.m.  All are invited.  

Rev. Bigley is a certified clinical aromatherapist having studied the use of naturally derived essential oils since 2005 and practiced as a clinical aromatherapist in two hospices since 2007, offering God’s natural touch of physical, emotional and spiritual well being.

Rev. Bigley said, “Lent is about repentance. Repentance isn’t about feeling guilty and bad about oneself. Repentance is about reconnecting to God, the Source of Love. Repentance involves the whole person: spirit, mind and body. Repentance involves healing. I want to share with you a part of our biblical heritage lost years ago and why and how I and a multitude of others have found the use of oils from God’s creation to be a way to repent, return to the Lord and be healed. Oils help to remove spiritual blocks that separate our awareness from the God’s love. I will do so this Lent on Wednesday evenings by beginning to talk about the Oils of the Bible. They have reoriented my life more deeply into God. You might say that God has given us a heavenly gift right under our noses. As a priest, this ministry is a natural part of my vocation and is congruent with anointing with holy oil for healing."
