Conflict - Fight or Flight?

Conflict can be painful, and we naturally want to avoid pain.  But there are good ways to handle conflict which deal with the problem while avoiding unnecessary damage to the parties involved.  There is too much conflict - we can't run away from all of it.  There is too much conflict - we can't win every battle.  So let us learn how to stand in conflict, doing the transformative work of peacemaking.  (Sermon Notes Availalbe Here).  Sermon coming 4/22/18

Power for the Problem of Conflict

As we heard last week we cannot avoid conflict, and if it isn't resolved it can have tragic results.  But if resolving conflict was easy everyone would be doing it.  It is more than knowing some good ideas, it is reliant on tapping into some real power.  This message is foundational if you want to make great progress in resolving everyday conflict.  (Click for Sermon Notes)

Resolving Everyday Conflict

"We all encounter conflict, whether it be with a coworker, family member, friend or complete stranger. And yet we all desire harmony in our relationships." This new series from the book Resolving Everyday Conflict, by Ken Sande & Kevin Johnson, teaches us practical, biblical ways to bring unity and harmony into our relationships.

Called and Committed - Before and After

Sometimes stories we have heard before can give us new insights and direction.  This is the power of the Bible, sometimes referred to as the "Living Word."  God, through his Spirit, makes it alive and dynamic as we can return to it again and again, and have God speak to us through it. 

Each year before Easter we turn to the passage of Jesus entering into the city of Jerusalem with a cheering crowd harolding his entry.  Interestingly, it says there were people going ahead of him, and there were people following behind.  Many times that "ahead of," and "following after," are roles God calls you and I to as we live lives of faith.   (Click for Sermon Notes)

Called and Committed - Reconcile As Needed

We all experience broken relationships.  Sometimes the stress and tension between people becomes too much and damage is done.  God has a plan for that - and you are involved!  This message gives some help and encouragement for this common problem.  (Sermon Notes)
