Acceptance & Belonging
Rejection is a very wounding experience because we all have a deep desire to belong and to feel accepted. God himself has given us this in-built desire to feel recognised, valued, and accepted for who we are. When this need has not been met, it can result in our rejecting ourselves, others or even God. God never rejects you and He longs to heal the wounds you carry because of past rejection.
As we learn to know God as he really is, we can learn to acept ourselves and others as unique and precious children of God. This wonderful course is for all who want to escape the treadmill of rejection and move into the joy of feeling accepted and knowing that you belong. The teaching will also be very helpful for anyone who feels called to minister God's love to hurting people. There will be opportuunity to receive some personal prayer.
Teaching topics: The initial teaching looks at the character of God, the principle in His kingdom of unconditional acceptance and the consequences of man's rejection of God. Further teaching topics include:
