April 19 Gathering: Disagreement and Unity

Conflict, it seems, is all around us. In the media, in politics, and, of course, in the church.

Conflict itself may be unavoidable. But does our rhetoric in the face of conflict make things better or worse? Can we disagree without being disagreeable? Can we achieve unity without uniformity?

This week at New Wineskins, we’ll talk about how we talk about the things over which we disagree. Our focus will be less on specific issues and more on strategies for loving our neighbors in the face of contention and sharing grace amidst the tension.

Will the world see us as just one more arguing faction, or as kingdom people who can rise above the rhetoric?

Join us in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company this Sunday and bring your perspectives to the conversation!

Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm

Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
