Do you get angry in traffic or while waiting in line?
Do you yell at your spouse or children?
Do you hurt their feelings with words spoken in anger?
Do you say things like, “My wife/husband makes me so mad”?
Have you ever struck your spouse or child in anger?
Has your spouse ever told you that you have a problem with anger?
If you said yes to any of these questions, then anger is a problem in your life that is hurting you and those close to you. The good news is that now you can get help in changing destructive patterns of anger into uplifting patterns of compassion and caring. As a result, you can greatly improve your interpersonal relationships with your family and come to experience for yourself the fruits of the Spirit such as peace, patience, gentleness and self-control.
McLean Bible Church invites you to attend a twelve-week workshop for men and women on anger management called COMPASSION. In this course you will learn how to recognize and heal the core hurts which result in anger, how to apply compassion to yourself and others, how to develop inner power and self-control, and how to forgive. Anger, compassion, and forgiveness will each be studied in both a Biblical and a clinical context.
The format of the course includes Audio/PP presentations, Bible lessons, homework assignments, and exercises to build new skills. A workbook will be provided.
The Spring Semester begins on January 15, 2019, and registration will open on December 15, 2018.
Compassion Workshop will follow Fairfax County Public Schools for any weather closures, so if school is canceled there will not be any class that night.
