It’s Complicated

The Relationship Conundrum

Series start date: July 11th, 2021

Relationship is a word and theme that runs rampant throughout the Biblical narrative.  Some might even argue that the story of God is about God’s relationship with humankind and humankind’s relationship with one another.  As we survey our current predicament in the world, we find ourselves in a quandary of sorts as divorces are on the rise, war has become the norm, political rivalry has become an obsession and unrest in communities are at all times high.  In this series, we will consider God’s insistence on establishing, building, maintaining, rebuilding and growing relationships.  Additionally, while we will explore challenges and complications, we will explore redemptive strategies to promote better relationships across the spectrum.

    It was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr who is quoted as saying,

    ... it is appalling that the most segregated hour of Christian America is eleven o'clock on Sunday morning.

    Black and white folks have long retreated to their respective cultural homes when it comes to worship. Worshipping with our "own folks" has been a source of safety and comfort.

    Talk is not cheap! Our words and the way we say things have proven to be tremendously hurtful to others. Relationships are being torn apart because of the way we speak to one another. How can we better use our words as tools for blessing others as opposed to using our words as weapons against relational bliss?

    Preaching

    Since God created humans with all its complexities, it is understandable that humans will have instances where they disagree and that they will have conflict with one another. It is also helpful to know that conflict doesn’t always have to end tragically. How can the people of God usher in a better way to handle conflict? Can individuals or groups disagree while still working toward the best interests of one another?
