“You can’t be spiritually healthy if you aren’t emotionally healthy.” —Peter Scazzero
Many of our churches are looking for discipleship resources during COVID-19. Due to physical distancing, our churches have had to get online quickly, including small groups.
One of the best resources available online is the Emotionally Healthy Discipleship (EHD). Emotionallyhealthy.org has some very helpful guidelines for taking the course online. Two courses are offered: Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (EHS) and Emotionally Healthy Relationships (EHR).
Why take the courses?
Many churches struggle and fail because of a lack of spiritual and emotional health because they contribute to a toxic culture. Even if your church has great programs, your church will cease to be attractive if it is not spiritually and emotionally healthy. Designed to help your church by equipping leaders and congregants in emotional health and relational health, this course can help change the culture of your church.
Here’s what one of our pastors, Sheldon Dyck of Mississauga City Baptist Church, has to say about his congregations comments on the course:
Why didn’t I learn these materials before?
This day-by-day reading is amazing.
My life is changing as a result of studying and implementing these materials.
Developing a habit of solitude and silence helped to bring healing to my marriage.
Some participants have been a part of church life for a long time, and yet they are discovering that these principles are transforming their relationships.
Currently, the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality and Emotionally Healthy Relationships videos are free for download until further notice. The companion books still need to be purchased. Please contact Bernice Quek at 416-620-2934 or email READ On Bookstore to order.
