Lesson Taught
Anger Lesson 1: What is anger? 
Ida went to Nabikenge and introduced the lesson about managing Anger. The lesson started with an ice breaker question, What is Anger? Samuel said that anger is a demon. Margaret junior said that she knows what anger is but can’t explain. Nabirye said that anger is a feeling after someone has annoyed you. Ida said that all answers are right according to the how you take it. Ida continued saying that anger is common to all ages. It is a part of human existence. At times we have all lashed out in anger or silently boiled in frustration. Being human and being involved in anything worthwhile will expose us to anger-producing situations. Anger can cause violent behaviors. Who has ever done something out for anger and regretted after? Many raised their hands and some told what they did. Nangobi said that her son refused to take goats for grazing and she gave him a punishment of not eating for two days. The boy was very hungry and went to the neighborhood and stole maize. Some unknown people had been stealing from that very garden, so the owner of the garden was on guard. He caught the boy and took him to the village council. The mother tried to defend the boy but no one listened to her. The village council told the boy’s mother to pay one hundred (100)kgs of maize. If she had controlled her anger she wasn’t going to struggle paying the 100 kgs of maize and yet the boy only took 2 pieces of maize. To make things worse her son was nicknamed “maize thief “ Samuel said that his wife refused him sex and he was too annoyed to control his anger that he beat her up and now the wife has some complications. He caused the problem and now can’t help her get treatment. He regrets as to why he didn’t control his anger. He wished that this anger lesson was taught in schools or churches this problem wouldn’t have happened. Ida concluded by saying that it’s normal to become angry, but harmful to stay angry. In your anger do not sin psalm 4:4. And also gave a memory verse for the week from the book of Ephesians 4:29.
