Do you know any angry people who need the gospel? If that question made you smile, then realize how needed a gospel-centered seminar on “Overcoming Anger” is.  We have just such an event coming up at The Summit on September 29 and October 6. We want to make sure the word gets out.

With that in mind we have one request, send out the following tweets (or Facebook posts) like they’re angry text messages over the next two weeks. The link provided goes to the free RSVP page with more information about the event and how to reserve childcare. All you need to do is copy, paste, and tweet enough to annoy RDU to the point that we realize how much we need this seminar.

  • Anger is not an emotion we can avoid. It is an emotion we must do well.
  • Until we do anger well we will misunderstand and misrepresent God.
  • The gospel is about reconciling righteous anger in a broken world.
  • If we disciple only our minds and not our emotions we will not represent Christ well.
  • If you hate being told to go to your happy place, this is the seminar for you.
  • I’m not angry! I’m just frustrated!
  • Anger says two things: “This is wrong and it matters….” Sinful anger says a third thing: “…more than you.”
  • The clearest gauge of whether anger is right or wrong in its expression is whether it acts to condemn or to      offer help.
  • Do you know of any examples of anger done in a way you want your children to model?
  • Of the seven deadly sins, anger is probably the most fun.
  • The longer anger consumes you, the harder it is to let go of the pride that comes with it.
  • How have you seen anger as your friend? How have you turned to anger in times of trouble before God?
  • God is angrier over the sin committed against you than you are.
  • When god-players admit the truth, they find amazing grace in Jesus: forgiveness, sanity, a fresh start, power, freedom.
  • The wise and foolish are distinguishable by how they get angry.
  • Jesus did not live a calm life; He cared too much.
  • Angry people r convincing communicators. Anger always sounds like the logical response when you listen to angry person.
  • Unless our anger is constructive it only contributes to the wrongness to which we are reacting.
  • Patience is the evidence of an inner strength. Impatient people are weak.
  • Anger is often a cowardly emotion. It shows itself most where it believes itself to be most safe.
  • True strength in God’s eyes means victory over one’s temper more than one’s enemies.
