Proverbs 14:29: Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.

Ecclesiastes 7:9: Be not quick in your spirit to become angry, for anger lodges in the bosom of fools.

  • Anger is often provoked by one of these being in danger:
    • Our identity/self-worth
    • Our values/things we care about
    • Our needs/wants
  • Discerning the why of our anger is the first step of controlling it, instead of being controlled by it.


  • No PAX took YHC up on solving the riddle of the name of the routine. The MYSTERY REMAINS.
    • Side note: YHC spent way too much time creating that Hardy Boys image.
  • Lots of mumble chatter about good topics. The rough train of thought was as follows:
    • Wicked’s Whoop Strap‘s advantages/disadvantages (mostly the latter), which measures heart rate variability.
    • YHC’s experience with rising heart rate in several church meetings (personal high was 147 bpm, while seated and still).
    • YHC’s experience in counseling situations within the church, the challenges thereof, and most common approaches to.
    • The prevalence of pornography use across society, how experiences with it work in relation to one’s upbringing, and its deleterious effects.
    • The almighty algorithm that can steer people into dark places, be it porn or white supremacy (see this podcast for a perspective on the latter).
  • Lots of good post-COT-pre-prayer chatter about anger and the PAX’s various struggles with it. YHC recommends the book Good & Angry by David Powlison for helpful and profound insight on the issue.
