SERMON SERIES: MAKE PEACE
Throughout Scripture it's clear: one of God's foremost priorities is that his children live at peace with others. Peace, though, doesn’t happen accidentally. It must be made. Crafted. Sometimes painstakingly crafted.
In this series of messages, we’ll examine what God says about why peace is valuable and how to bring it to our relationships. Along the way, we'll find that peace in human relationships isn’t a function of an absence of conflict, but rather a function of one’s ability to (with God’s wisdom and power) resolve conflict well.
PART 1: DIFFERENT THAN AN ATHEIST?
PART 2: TREE REMOVAL
PART 3: GO TIME
Often when there’s a problem between us and someone else, the last person we talk to about it is the person who's involved. Jesus, though invites us on a different path--one of proactive, gentle reconciliation. This means having hard conversations, but it also means enjoying peace.

PART 4: YOU DON'T OWE ME
What does it actually mean to forgive? And why is it so important, anyway? As we close this series, we’ll explore the impact of forgivness on conflict and relationships, and we'll explore some practical insights on how to get better at “letting go” when someone has wronged us.
