Unplug From Conflict 09 Dec 18

(Message 2) Who’s house are we going to this Christmas? How long do we have to stay? What if Uncle Larry starts an argument? It’s easy to be anxious and even anticipate conflict during the Christmas season. Join us as our guest speaker, Clay Weed, explains how to have peace and unplug from conflict this Christmas. #christmasunplugged

Causes of Conflict:

  1. A lack of common understanding
  2. Poor communication skills
  3. Unclear or unfair expectations
  4. Power plays and manipulations

 

Shalom:

A Hebrew word meaning “peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquility”.

 

3 Types of Peace:

  1. Peace with God (Spiritual)
  2. Peace with Yourself (Internal)
  3. Peace with Others (Relational)

 

Peace is not the absence of conflict, rather it is the presence of Christ.
