Resolving Conflicts

Last Sunday our pastor preached an intriguing sermon on Matthew 18.15-17. As often happens, God shows Pastor Jeff things in a passage that God never showed me - despite the fact that I preached the same passage two or three times in the past. It's one of the delights of worship at New Life. So, last Sunday was another enlightening Sunday.

After church I went looking for a particular sermon I remembered preaching many years ago on that passage. I found it in my files for 1998 and noticed that I had not previously posted it to the public. And I'm it contains some very helpful content for anybody who leads others - in the church, the home, on the athletic team, or the workplace. It's simply been my go-to passage and philosophy for all kinds of conflict management.

So I revised it into a sort of teaching to guide pastors and parishioners in resolving conflicts in all kinds of settings - or to use to teach others how to do this. To have a look, click on Resolving Conflict

(To hear Pastor Jeff's teaching on Matthew 18 you'll have to wait until he retires, and hope he'll start posting his sermons on the internet. Sorry about that.)
