Sociologist Robert Woodson, President of the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise and author of a new book, The Triumph of Joseph: How Community Healers Are Reviving our Streets and Neighborhoods, speaks to need for transformation. “If I’m killing myself, I do not need to be rehabilitated. I need to be transformed. I need to be another person. Therapy does not make you another person.”
When asked what he meant by transformation he replied, “Rehabilitation rarely removes bad stuff. Transformation replaces bad stuff with good stuff.”

If you want to know how to be another person, it is necessary to go back to the original creator and allow Him to make you over again.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (CEV) “Anyone who belongs to Christ is a new person. The past is forgotten, and everything is new.”
