Together #forSalem: Conflict (Ep 2)
This pandemic and having to stay at home as much as possible can be a real test of our relationships. But what if we saw this time as a chance to improve our relationships and not just struggle through them? In this week’s episode, Jon talks about the root of conflict in relationships and the solution… it’s something that may surprise you. Afterward, Jon and Liz discuss some key elements in working through conflict in relationships.

So, what about….?
An open and honest discussion exploring your questions about God and Christianity.
But before we start, know this: We can disagree and still be in the same family. You can disagree and still be a full participant in Crosscreek. And, we want to have this to be a start of the conversation. Take this further using the buttons below.
We also want to have this to be a start of the conversation. And you can be involved. Take it further by sending us your comments & questions (firstname.lastname@example.org), using the study questions with a friend, and listening to the next 5 messages in this series.
What’s the difference between Christianity and other religions? How do you know which one is RIGHT? It’d be easy if we could just say they all are. But… the problem is all faiths can’t be true without fundamentally changing what they are. So what do we do with this? There are REAL differences, and that can be hard to talk about without making someone feel ‘wrong’ or insulted. So as we explore this question of differences… let’s keep this in mind. Disagreement is not the same as hate or intolerance.
As you listen or watch, know this too: this is meant to be a start to a bigger conversation. And that means you’re with us in it, we hope. And, it doesn’t stop here! Take it further using the links below.
Thanks for watching online this week, and for foreseeable future. You can still connect with us virtually, and keep checking in with your neighbors and each other. We can be the Church, be FOR each other, without a building. And contact us with your needs, questions, prayer requests, or just to say hi.
Give it a listen or a watch, and let it be the START of a bigger conversation. You can take this message further by sending us your comments & questions (email@example.com), use our study questions, and listen to all of the messages in this series. We’d love to hear from you!
