AMENDing Through Faith is an eight-week series for men who are passionate about ending violence against women and actively seeking specific ways to make the world a better place. This series series is Christian faith-based but is adaptable to other faiths.
AMEND Together has partnered with the General Commission on United Methodist Men to create this eight-week group series in which men will learn to recognize, respond to, and prevent violence against women. By doing this, participants will not only increase their health and happiness through faith-based learnings, but also they will increase the strength of their fellowship. Participants will become better equipped to support each other in the pursuit of healthy and Godly relationships, ultimately reducing violence in our communities by supporting struggling men and leading them away from the path to violence and onto the path of righteousness.
Throughout the course, participants will be asked to do some contextualizing. No matter how committed to and well-versed participants are in Scripture, it aids their understanding to consider it in context, gleaning the true teachings of the Bible and learn how those teachings relate to their lives and our current culture. We don't have to sacrifice truth for accessibility.
