December 20, 2021 | Dr. Eric Suddeath

Whether as a friend, pastor, counselor, or family member, helping people navigate the complex layers of families splitting up, co-parenting, and entering new marriages is an often messy but important part of ministry. Dr. Eric Suddeath, associate professor of counseling, brings a host of experience as a counselor to this conversation and gives valuable insight on the common challenges of these family dynamics. He offers encouragement and advice for how the gospel influences how we walk alongside families in the areas of forgiveness, grace, and peacemaking.
