Ticked – God is Ticked
Series: Ticked
Ticked: A Series about Anger
 
Anger is a common emotion for all, but it can be a challenge to know when anger is an appropriate feeling in different circumstances. Some might suggest that we live in an angry culture, where angry people are nearly tearing our world apart. How do we know how to be faithful to God and deal with our angry emotions? This series will seek to answer a few questions about anger and provide ways to deal with and use our anger in a Christian way.
 
God is Ticked
Psalm 103:8-10; Micah 7:18-19; Psalm 30:5; Genesis 6
 
The issue of whether a Christian can be angry is a complex one. God gets angry in the Bible, so perhaps all of our anger isn't bad. It's important to consider the anger ratio. God's anger lasts a "moment" but favor lasts a lifetime.
 
After considering a God who can be angry (and who is also holy), perhaps our study of anger should consider unhelpful anger versus holy anger.

    Grooves – The Last Third
    Series: Grooves
    All should seek the good end. Steinbeck said in his East of Eden, "And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good."
     
    The final third for the Masculine Path is the journey of descent, of learning the lowliness of humility, wisdom, and legacy. Jacob climbs the first part of his life, but is a background character in the last part. Hebrews says that he needs support to at the end of his life. He’s learned to place his life in another’s hands.
     
    The final third for the Feminine Path is the ascent, the arrival of delayed blessing from obedience. At the end of the story, Naomi is praised by the same women that showed her contempt. She came to Bethlehem empty, but at the end, her arms are full.

    Listening to God
    Isaiah 6:8 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
    8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I; send me!”

    Grooves – Second Third
    Series: Grooves
    Genesis 29:1-35:15 and Ruth 2:1-3:18
     
    Loss doesn't necessarily mean "the end." Loss can actually be a grace. For the Feminine Path, this phase of life is the beginning of redemption. Identity is shaped, authority and power is discovered.
     
    The second third of the Masculine Path involves a crisis of limitation. The gains one had in the first third of life are taken away or compromised. Gains are hard to come by, even illusive. It might seem that God’s judging someone during this time, but God wants to teach them the way of the cross, the low road. The first half of life was easy for Jacob, he was able to trick others. His time in Paddan Aram was filled with challenge, deception, and struggle.
     
    The second third of the Feminine Path involves the beginning of the climbing. Rohr calls it “The work of Body and Soul” when one begins to develop a solid self, a loving community, and an enduring purpose. Naomi’s unique knowledge of the intricacies of Judean culture allowed Ruth to work her way towards Boaz, Naomi’s kinsman redeemer.

    Grooves – First Thirds
    Series: Grooves
    The first third of the Masculine Path is a Heroic Journey, filled with discovery of power and the formation of the self. The first third of the Feminine Path is a Descent Journey, where one develops a permeable self through the process of waiting and loss.
     
    This is particularly important for raising our children; in their early faith formation, two different operating softwares might be at play in the different children of our household.
