From Anger to Intimacy -   Starts Thursdays, June 8—July 13 | 6:30-8pm | Shea A6


Join Gary Smalley and Ted Cunningham as they explore the roots of anger and the problems it brings into our relationships. Typical anger responses are to “stuff it” or “spew it”, but in this 7-week DVD study you will learn a third and healthy option—study it.

Gary and Ted remind participants that “anger is like drinking poison expecting others to get sick.” They will help you discover the antidote—processing the anger, recognizing and conquering the roadblocks, and ultimately seeking forgiveness. Whether the anger is over something small or large, this study has the power to help transform your marriage into one that gives glory to God.
