Changes that Heal (Men's Bible Study)

Leader: Jeff Patton |

Fellowship Bible Church Murfreesboro: 4236 Veterans Parkway, Murfreesboro, TN US 37128

Hello Fellowship Men,

I sincerely want to invite you to join me this fall in working through the book (and workbook) "Changes that Heal" by Dr. Henry Cloud. I can honestly say that no other book (except for the Bible) has helped me "change", genuine, heartfelt change from the inside out, than ’Changes that Heal". Josh McDowell (world renown Christian apologist) agrees when he says: "It has affected my life more than any other book I’ve read". 

Dr. Cloud is unique in that he is both a Theologian and a clinical psychologist at the prestigious Minirth-Meier Clinic. Think a "Phil Herndon" kind of guy who takes the word of God and applies it deeply to human sin and struggle. 

When I say, "human sin and struggle", I am speaking of how our brokenness plays itself out in our daily lives. For example, anxiety, loneliness, people pleasing, grief over broken relationships, an inability to connect deeply with others from the heart, resentment, hurt, rage, fear, people pleasing, legalism, secrets, fear of failure, lying, Shame and Guilt, projecting our "stuff" on others, Reacting vs. responding, perfectionism or the need to be "perfect", not being able to be vulnerable, a lack of empathy, inability to set boundaries, insecurities, depression, personal condemnation, etc. Because these things are common with us humans, everyone will benefit from this study. 

This is not a study just for those with serious emotional and relational problems. Yes, while such people will benefit greatly, I personally do not know a single person who do not have emotional and relational struggles I have listed above. We are all part of a fallen humanity that knows what "should be" and yet are unable to live out those ideals because of our sinfulness. Cloud helps these broken parts grow and heal, thus helping us to make more of the lives God has intended for us. 

Growing into Christian maturity (or spiritual adulthood) is the goal and we, because of the way we see the world around us and our personal stories, often get stuck. Come get "unstuck" with the other men at Fellowship! 

Lastly, this study will 100% make you more usable and effective in the Kingdom of God. Whether it’s relating deeply with your family or sharing Christ with a non-believing friend, the truth (God’s truth) in "Changes that Heal" will in able you to run to the front lines of Kingdom work with a maturity that is usable in the hands of our great God.
