This course covers the topic/issue of offense both in the individual and in the life of the church along with other ministry contexts. The greater our expectations, the greater potential we have to be offended. Once we’re offended, we begin to build walls in our relationships to protect and insulate ourselves from additional wounds. Over time, these walls become mental and emotional strongholds that do us more harm than good. Holding on to offense activates a progressive chain of pain in our lives and for those around us.
Students who successfully complete this course will:
- Comprehend and analyze how offense develops in the life of the individual and in ministry contexts.
- Evaluate steps to deal with and resolve offense in the life of the individual and in ministry contexts.
