How different would your next family gathering, work day, or neighborhood picnic be if everyone chose to celebrate or weep with each other before trying to convince, correct, or lobby for their agendas?
Jesus never said that getting along would be easy, especially loving one another. But He did call us to do it.
Becky Keife, from (in)Courage, joins me in this episode to discuss the book, Come Sit With me, How to Delight in Differences, Love through Disagreements, and Live with Discomfort.
In this episode, Becky and I talk about many different ways that several authors have handled their hard conversations and conflict.
In the book Come Sit with Me, How to Delight in Differences, Love through Disagreements, and Live with Discomfort, more than two dozen (in)Courage writers shared their own painful, grace-filled learning experiences with readers.
I hope our conversation will serve as your guide to move through challenges and grow closer to God, whether you are experiencing a conflict without resolution or wondering how to enter into a friend’s pain. Becky believes it starts by inviting God and others to simply “come sit with me.”
