Anger Management & Domestic Violence

Healthy Anger

Central Community Church
6100 W. Maple Wichita, KS 67209
Tuesdays at 7:00pm Room 207 Cost: $12

The material in the Anger: Our Master or Our Servant provides a challenging journey into the powerful emotion of anger. Christians find it particularly difficult to accept the fact of anger in their lives. Many see anger as a feeling that is contradictory to their faith and "walk in the Spirit." The Bible presents some clear principles on how to manage anger. Few of us have been taught how to live with our feelings. We are taught how to think, but feelings often overwhelm and master the Christian. With spousal abuse, child abuse, violence, depression and other problems on the rise in our culture, it is clear that anger and its potential for evil or righteousness need to be addressed from a biblical perspective. Together this group will take a journey that will provide new and exciting ways to understand and direct your anger to God’s purpose and plan for your life – a healthy Christian life.
