Life Together and Conflict Resolution
Interpersonal relations, Conflict management, Christian life, Community, Christianity and culture
While we celebrate and are proud of the heritage we personally own and cherish, no cultural group or ethnic group is perfect. Human history teaches us that every culture is sinful, in need of God’s grace, for the harm done to the different person, the immigrant, the poor and powerless, the neighboring cultural or ethnic group. Each culture has its history of violence done in the name of some value or historical reason, if not in the name of God. No culture is sinless and perfect, and all are in need of the grace of God.
God invites us to live together and share the blessings of the gospel, to live n harmony and prepare for the coming kingdom of God. What a challenge! But with that commission also comes the grace.
