Session 5 - How Medicine & Sufficiency of Scripture Meet (Dr Charles Hodges, MD) Over the years of his medical and ministry experience, Dr. Hodges has been blessed by God to develop effective methods in ministering to both the body & soul of his patients. You will gain valuable insights and practical tools for being both a physician of the soul as well as body whether you are a pastor, people-helper, counselor or Physician.
Research done at the University of Exeter found that the brain's stress response to a perceived threat is stopped when we are reminded that we are loved and cared for. This research reinforces the approach God has used in counseling His anxious and stressed children for centuries. On March 17 and 18, Dr. Charles Hodges and Tim Bryant will team up to show you how to use biblical meditations on God and, as wisely discerned, modern medicine to transform stressed emotions, unpleasant feelings and help those with physical pain and illness. Biblical counseling and modern medicine can be used in sync to provide a complete solution to the needs of the soul and body. Receive valuable insights, tools and methods to make applications to your life and ministry to others.
