Discussion Board Forum 3 Thread

You must use the textbook as a source (cite and reference) in your thread (at least 400 words). Choose one of the 3 options for your thread; do not respond to each question. Give your thread a title indicating what it is about. When you write your replies, you are encouraged to choose threads to reply to that are different than the one you chose to write on. The discussion board forums correspond with the current textbook reading. Include biblical integration; explain how the topic applies to your faith. Do not simply restate the text; give your own thoughts and analysis. One way to discuss the forum topic, is by giving a counseling example or situation to illustrate the point you are making. Do not use more than one direct quote in a post; quotes must be less than 40 words.
