Student-Wives Fall Evening Education Series Concludes - 11/27/07

On Tuesday evening, November 27, Dr. Mary Ford, PhD., Associate Professor of New Testament and Hermeneutics, led the fourth in a series of Wives’ Evening Education classes designed specifically for student-wives and taught by Seminary faculty.  The lecture, entitled “Understanding Self-Condemnation, Self-Esteem, and Godly and UnGodly Sorrow," related the Holy Fathers' teachings about the spiritual warfare that is constantly waged in our hearts and minds.  The student-wives gained valuable insight on differentiating between self-esteem and Godly self-love, and between self-justification and repentant self-condemnation.  Dr. Ford also related how we can use times of depression and spiritual coldness unto our own and others' spiritual growth and salvation.
