What is one of the main barriers to having a better relationship with anyone? Wednesday we’ll visit with counselor James Hilt about what needs to be rooted out and what needs to be watered to grow thriving relationships. If you are feeling disconnected and resentful, this reset may be helpful in moving toward a healthier, happier friendship with others.
Jesus has commanded us to love our neighbor as ourselves and Wednesday we’ll learn how to live this out with our gay and lesbian neighbors. Glenn Stanton will offer insight into developing friendships and find meaningful lasting relationships without either sacrificing or compromising our own beliefs. From Jesus’ question “who is my neighbor?” we discover the clear message is that we are to love the people that live at the end of our ideological or sociological spectrum. We’ll discuss how to do this in a Christ-honoring way on Wednesday morning.
