This weekend we conclude our message series on how involvement in community helps us grow. The series has been called "Better Together." Tomorrow I'm going to be preaching on Galatians 5 which talks about the two natures within each of us -- what Paul calls "the flesh" in this instance, and the Spirit. Within that passage, he also gives a warning about what can happen if they give in to the instincts of the flesh, when they are dealing with any kind of disagreement or conflict: "If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other." (Gal 5:13) Many of us have dealt with great pain as a result of things that happened in churches. The focus of this message will be on the challenge to focus on our part, and our reactions, when there is conflict.
