Resolving Everyday Conflict

Conflict is common. It’s common to all people and it’s common to all of life. It’s usually experienced in our ordinary interactions with an overbearing boss, a challenging colleague, a difficult neighbor, a moody teenager, a complaining spouse, etc. Conflict is common but applying the gospel to our conflicts is not. Most of us hate conflict. So we either respond with dysfunctional conflict avoidance or dysfunctional anger. Either way bitterness and callousness set in. Though we want to deal with conflict in a more God-honoring, people-loving way we often do not know how to.

Resolving Everyday Conflict is a nine-week study, based on the book by Peacemaker Ministries, that seeks to unpack key biblical principles for dealing with conflict resolution and cultivating healthier relationships. It is a Christ-centered study that presents powerful and practical answers to everyday problems. Whether you’re struggling in a relationship at home, at work, at school, or know someone who is, this study offers help for living out the gospel in our relationships.

Workbooks are available for this study (from our Wednesday night service – 7:00pm each week). If you would like to purchase a copy, please email the church office. Cost per book: $5. I addition, you can also pick up the book copy of the original material from Peacemaker Ministries: Resolving Everyday Conflict here.

G2: Get the Log Out

In this session, we look at the second of four practical principles of peacemaking—Get the Log Out. In conflict, we naturally focus on the other person and rarely consider our own contribution. So the practical outworking of glorifying God (G1) in conflict begins with examining self (G2) rather than the other person. After asking, “How can I glorify God in this situation,” we must ask, “How can I own my part in this conflict?” Bringing glory to God in conflict starts with practical humility, self-examination, and personal repentance of all sinful contributions to the conflict. To aid application, this lesson offers practical directions and examples for self-examination and repentance.
