How much anger is too much anger?
The author of Ephesians wrote a powerful letter to the church in Ephesus detailing what it means to build community, and to live in community. He told them there are no shortcuts, and gave them solid guidance on how to live in relationship to each other.
And it’s all good!

So… which is it? ‘Cause I get angry, and I’d like to know if that’s ok!
