“Conflict is inevitable but combat is optional.”― Max Lucado
If we live in proximity to other human beings, we will encounter conflict. It’s everywhere. In this series of sermons and small group studies we will explore how handling conflict fits in with being a follower of Jesus. We’ll consider conflict and forgiveness in the home, in church, in the workplace, and in society more broadly. We’ll consider scenarios where we are the person who has been wronged or offended, scenarios where we have wronged or offended someone else, and scenarios where we are bystanders to a conflict between others. We’ll see how important it is for followers of Jesus to handle conflict wisely and to be a people of forgiveness and reconciliation.
Small groups will explore some key Bible passages, and the Sunday sermons will explore the topic more broadly.
