There is a separation between counselling, community and congregational life in much of the evangelical world. The counselling enterprise has become a private sanctioned retreat that has de-emphasized community with the result that the power of congregational life to bring healing has been either ignored or negated. This series holds as central the assumption that community paradigms for help are not only more consistent with a biblical understanding of people but also more effective. Through the lenses of Scripture, sociologically and psychology Dr. Wilson invites listeners to explore theoretical issues related to the role of community in the process of healing and to develop practical ways to work this out in congregational life. Lectures include:

  • Introduction
  • Yearning for Community
  • Defining Community
  • The Counselling Field and Community
  • Biblical and Theological Roots
  • Barriers to Community
  • What this Might Look Like Practically
