2/10 - 3/24 (7 classes) | Bringing ALL of Our Emotions to God: How should my feelings and emotions impact my faith? Does God care about them or should we ignore them? Are certain feelings more God-like than others? We’ll be addressing these questions and more, based on the wonderful book "The Cry of the Soul: How our Emotions Reveal our Deepest Questions about God," by Dan Allender and Tremper Longman. Utilizing movie clips, real-life dramatic scenes, and other multimedia as examples of emotional expressions, we’ll be looking at the righteous and unrighteous versions of six main emotions that the authors identify - anger, fear, jealousy, despair, contempt, and shame. This is a new and exciting class that could transform your relationship with God and others as we grapple with the all-important topics of emotional understanding and expression.
