ELC 220 – Emotionally Healthy Spirit

Many of us believe loving well is learned automatically, that it is just a “feeling”. We underestimate the depth of our bad habits and what is needed to sustain long-term, Christlike change in our relationships.”- Peter Scazzero

Join the discussion as we move through “Emotionally Healthy Spirituality”, Peter Scazzero's best-selling book exploring emotional and spiritual health as a blended human quality. Learn to tackle barriers by identifying and addressing many of the struggles that prevent growth in your relationship with Christ and with others. Peter says “It's impossible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature.” In an era of constant connection and activity, it's increasingly difficult reflect and grow. Discussing Peter's journey is a great way to start.

EBS 110 – Be Committed: Ruth & Esther

In our world of sin and compromise, it is a difficult choice to put yourself at the feet of the Lord. The Books of Ruth and Esther remind us what it means to be committed to do God’s will, even in the most difficult of times. Through these two heroines of the faith, we will explore obeying in spite of consequence and we will witness God at work to guide, bless, save and transform their lives. Join us as we see precisely the difference that commitment makes.
