Christians and Anger: Friend or Foe?
Tuesday 16 March 19h30-21h via Zoom.
The prolonged Covid-19 pandemic has presented many challenges for us to contend with as we continue to rearrange and cope with life in ways we don't want to. Bouts of depression, shortness of temper, lashing out, strained relationships, passive aggressive behavior, negative self-talk are all common experiences – and they all point to anger issues.
Although given and received, anger is rarely talked about by Christians, leading us to be confused with its appropriateness, bewildered as to whether it is sinful or not, and troubled by how to deal with it in helpful and life-giving ways.
Join on Tuesday, 16 March for a special Thurber Conversation with Dr. Rod Wilson, a pastor and clinical psychologist who has authored two books on anger- Exploring Your Anger and Helping Angry People.
Reading materials will be sent to all registrants ahead of our Thurber Conversation.
Dr. Rod Wilson served as President of Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia from 2000-2015. Originally trained as a clinical psychologist, Dr. Wilson pursued theological training after completing his doctoral work. He has been involved in the field of counselling and consulting for over thirty years. He is currently Teaching Pastor at Capilano Christian Community as well as Senior Advisor with A Rocha Canada, and consultant with various organizations. Dr. Wilson has also authored two award winning books, Counseling and Community and How Do I Help a Hurting Friend? Dr. Rod is enjoying life in Vancouver, BC with his wife Bev.
Thurber Conversations are an adult community gathering and growth time that is open to all.
