On this episode of This vs. That, we dive into a discussion about Healthy Emotional Expression versus Being Controlled by Our Emotions with special guest Alasdair Groves. As the executive director of CCEF and a faculty member and counselor, Alasdair is well-versed in the topic at hand. We explore the pitfalls that Christians often fall into when discussing emotions, including the extremes of being defined by our emotions and completely shutting them down. We also discuss the importance of emotional intelligence and how it can be applied in a biblical sense. Join us as we gain insights from Alasdair's experience and wisdom on this important topic.


Trauma and Abuse. It’s in the headlines. It’s on social media. It’s also in our churches. We live in a fallen world where Christians are not immune from the effects of sin and brokenness. How can we love the hurting and vulnerable in our ministries well?

The Evangelical Council for Abuse Prevention and Gospel Care Collective are partnering together to help equip ministry leaders to respond to this problem. At TGC23 in Indianapolis, we will host a panel event aiming to provide a biblical perspective on these issues, with a focus on the role of the church in healing trauma and preventing abuse. Join us as we hear from long-time practitioners in ministry and counseling, including Jennifer Greenberg, Eliza Huie, Jason Kovacs, Mike Kruger, and Dr. Jeremy Pierre, to make the church a safer place for vulnerable people.

While our funds go to people in need of counseling and to support the growing ministry of Ingrid Hope, we have two specific financial needs.
