Fighting Fair: Disagreeing without Destroying
We all have disagreements—with our spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend, parents, coworkers, or even the President. But often, we fight dirty. We shout, blame, and threaten. We throw, shove, and hit. All the while, we’re destroying our relationships for the sake of a fight.
It’s time we live up to God’s expectation of Christians, even in the middle of a fight. In this series, learn how to fight fair, avoid the damage that comes with anger, selfishness, and resentment, and have healthier relationships to show for it.
Words are powerful. We all know that. That’s why, in the middle of a fight, we use them to hurt our spouse, parent, or friend. But how often do we excuse them with things like, “I didn’t mean it; I was just angry” or “You made me do it”? It’s time that we redeem our words, even in the middle of an argument. Join Pastor Greg to learn how. (2/5/17)

Behind our hurtful words and destructive behaviors toward each other, there is an unseen spiritual battle. In the middle of a fight, we often see the other person as our enemy. But, in every fight, there is a real enemy and real evil present. Join Pang Foua Yang Rhodes as she explores the spiritual side of an argument and helps all of us fight against the real enemy of our relationships and our soul. (3/12/17)
