Walking In Freedom*

The purpose of the Walking in Freedom group is to help participants live in freedom from life-controlling problems that can hinder their spiritual development. Because our lives are shaped by the choices we make and the interaction we have with those around us, our spiritual development is often hindered by the way we relate to others. This study on the book of James gives practical guidance on how we can walk out freedom from life-controlling problems. Our goal is to go forward in each session, treating Walking in Freedom as a 12-week journey toward a more peaceful and godly way to live.
