Whenever people get together, there is bound to be conflict. The Bible is full of characters with relationship problems. Biblical conflict resolution tools can help us honor Christ in our lives and help restore relationships with people in our lives. Romans 12:18 says, “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” While some people make it impossible to reconcile, you will be blessed when you do your part to try to bring healing and forgiveness.
We will look at some of the tools available from Ken Sande and Peacemaker Ministries in print and online. They include the 4 G’s of Peacemaking, The Seven A’s of Confession, the Four Promises of Forgiveness and the PAUSE Principle of Negotiating.
Come to Rockwell Church this Sunday to be encouraged to seek to live at peace with others and help others find peace in the midst of their conflicts. A great Sunday to bring a friend or enemy!
