Emotional maturity has to do with the human challenge of expressing honest feelings in a way that honors God. It pertains to the paradox of being able to adjust in order to remain emotionally stable. Many professing Christians are undeveloped emotionally; they have not been taught to pay attention to how they relate at an emotional level. In this course students get to engage in self-assessment, reflect deeply on Jesus' maturity, and practice sharing honestly in a way that is relationally constructive. In short, this is a course that teaches adult learners how to love.
