Responding Biblically to Anger
Anger is a God given emotion that we all experience from time to time. The problem is that our human natures have the tendency to be angry in a sinful way. Anger may characterize how we respond to certain triggers, but anger itself doesn’t control us, the evil desires within us do. We were created in the image of God with the capacity to be angry in a righteous way. In this workshop, we will learn how to practically apply biblical truths as they relate to the temptation of becoming sinfully angry as well as how to disciple and counsel others to do the same.
Proverbs 31 Woman - Is She Relevant for Today?
The book of Proverbs culminates with a teaching about the wise and worthy Proverbs 31 woman. Some have argued that she is too idealistic, unrealistic, or just plain annoying to read about. Is this model of biblical womanhood even relevant for today? Please join us for this intriguing (two part?) workshop as we discover the timeless truths from God’s Word about our biblical responsibilities as women. In this workshop, we will learn how to practically apply these truths in our own lives as well as in the lives of those we disciple and help to restore biblical womanhood.
Responding Biblically to Fear, Worry, and Anxiety
Most of us know that worry is wrong, so we disguise it with different terms like, “concerned,” “troubled,” or “bothered.” Regardless of the term used, worry saps our energy, drains our joy, destroys evangelism, and even aggravates many physical ailments. The Bible is clear that worry is sinful, idolatrous, and a sign of unbelief, and that fear is wrong when it is allowed to motivate thinking and behavior that is unbiblical. In this workshop, we will discover the biblical solutions to worry, the keys to overcoming fear, and how to disciple those we love with the same truths.
