If your congregation is not a member, you can still purchase webinars and presentations. The site will create an account for you during the purchasing process, so that you can access the purchased videos for repeated viewing.

RFC’s content for purchase is provided in the form of video stream off our website (no CD, DVD, etc. is made available). This allows users to access the material immediately. After successful payment, the video is made available to whichever user is currently logged in (or an account is created with the email address they entered if they are not logged in). Users must be logged in with this same user to view the video. All videos that are purchased and now available will display "watch now" in the list (instead of "add to cart").

Webinar: 10/04/2013
$15.00

On the way to the deep and full joy that Jesus desires for us, we feel profound anxiety, deep rage, powerful shame, and intense grief in response to the ordinary experience of life that can challenge our faith, shake our hope, and limit our love. This webinar will help participants to deepen awareness of our emotional lives as invitations to transformation, growth, wisdom and peace all opening us to deeper faith and genuine hope. In addition to naming and removing the obstacles that block life giving emotions, this webinar will also discuss ways of expressing emotion that will deepen our intimacy with God and with others.
