Repenting of Religion

Start Date: Oct 06, 2022

We human beings are burdened by our tendencies to harshly judge others and ourselves. Unfortunately for believers, this bent is as prevalent in the church as in the world. Only an attitude shift in how we perceive ourselves in light of God’s love can impact how we relate to people and transform our judgmental nature. Believers wrestling with the reality of God’s love and Christians struggling with judging in the local church will appreciate this examination of how we move from a self-centered to a Christ-centered life.

Repenting of Religion follows a flipped-class format. This means participants will watch weekly videos on their own time prior to class, and during our time together we will discuss the content.

Class Materials: Links to videos will be provided to watch prior to class sessions, so meeting time will be for discussion

Thursday nights, 7-8:15pm CT (No class November 24)

Class Format: Online via Zoom
Duration: 8 weeks

"I am a podrishioner that just wanted to say thanks for sharing Woodland Hills through podcasts and videos. This is my place to get a spiritual refill, and it’s where I get most of my teaching from. Since I've starting following you four years ago, my view on God, myself and other people has radically been changed. Thanks so much, and keep sharing the Kingdom!"
