The Peacemaker by Ken Sande takes readers beyond resolving conflicts to true, life-changing reconciliation with family members, coworkers, and fellow believers. Biblically based, The Peacemaker is full of godly wisdom and useful suggestions that are easily applied to any relationship needing better communication, tools for “fighting fair” and reconciliation. This class is discussion-based, practical, and builds community with others who have young children.
What does the Bible have to say about the relationship between believers and their leadership, government, or country? If Jesus said that His kingdom is not of this world, how do we live in it biblically? Do you know how our US government functions, its history, and its responsibility to the public it governs? Take a thoughtful journey into appreciating what God-given privileges we have as Americans and how God would have us live into His kingdom while living here on earth.
