We live in a time period weighed down by conflict. Voices of anger, frustration, annoyance, disrespect and judgment are reigning down all around us. Petitioning voices yell “choose this side,” “follow this opinion,” “stand your ground,” “don’t listen to that,” leaving behind the shrapnel of tension-filled homes, divided family members, confused children, discouraged leaders, and boiling division.
How do we live like Christ in this season of life? How can we represent him during this sojourn through conflict? What message would we deliver?
This is the challenge facing our Sojourners as we begin the second missionary journey. So be sure, we will leave with some tools to handle conflict like Christ.
