g(O)dd Topic: Biblical Counsel v. Professional Counseling
In this episode Bruce shares his thoughts on how we might have abdicated our authority, as followers of Christ, to speak wisdom into the lives of those other followers whom we are in community with. He also what it means for the body of Christ to provide counsel within their community and how that is different than professional counseling.
With some recent tragedies in the city that he lives in, the need for community members, especially vocational pastors (because people trust you for this type of stuff), to know the difference and when to refer people is critical. Knowing the difference als helps build healthier Gospel Centered Community.
