ESCAPE: New Sunday Class Continues in June Douglas Jacoby and Steve Brand will be joining forces to teach a series called ESCAPE, and everyone is welcome to attend. Steve Brand is a professional counselor and expert on addictive behaviors. Here’s the provisional plan:

- Alternate fictional reality. Focus: movies, novels, worlds of gaming, TV.
- Fantasy proxy relationships. Focus: pornography.
- Computer and internet behaviors. Focus: gaming, gambling, shopping, surfing. The importance of not being conformed to the world (Romans 12:2), or falling prey to the many tempting avenues of “escape.”
