Fully Alive in Christ
Stewarding Your Internal World - Ryan Rhoden
August 14, 2022
We are currently on a journey on emotional health in the context of our spiritual journey. This is based on Peter Scazzero's famous book Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. You can't be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. Most of us avoid conflict in the name of Christianity; ignore our anger, sadness, and fear; use God to run from God; and live without boundaries. In this series we will learn biblical integration of emotional health and the spiritual practice of slowing down and quieting our life to experience a fully alive relationship with Jesus, with ourselves, and with others.
