Anger and Followers of The Way

put this slideshow together to spur discussion about anger for our community group.
the first few slides are responses folks shared a few weeks back when I asked them to fill in the blanks... I am _____ so I must embrace ____. As in I am a sinner so as a Follower of The Way, I must embrace holiness. Since several folks mentioned anger I thought it would lead to some great discussion tonight.
We didn't get that far in our discussion tonight but it led to some great comments on Twitter and Facebook to say the least.

Some of the twitter comments:
