When two sinners marry one another, conflict is inevitable. The important question is: How will you handle it when it shows up?
If there is anything we must learn in order to foster a peaceful and joyful marriage, we must learn how to work through our conflicts biblically and learn how to reduce future conflicts. In a recent seminar presented by the counseling ministry at our church, we discovered why we have conflict, the goal in conflict resolution, and practical, biblical, God-glorifying steps to resolve conflict.
You can listen to this two-part seminar taught by Ed Fedor, one of the pastors and counselors at our church. Here are the audio links: Part 1 and Part 2. There’s also a downloadable PDF worksheet. Perhaps listen alone, with your spouse, or in a small group at your church.
