Bowling for Conflict

When some people tell the story, following Jesus marks the end of all problems.

Birds sing, the sun comes out from behind the clouds, and you never have to eat leftovers again.

This has not been my experience.

Like every other facet of the human experience, conflict is not eliminated by the life of faith, just changed.

Recently, I had an opportunity to talk a bit about this at Lifelink Memphis.

After the talk, my words were smuggled out, one syllable at a time, by audio ninjas and lovingly reassembled inside the button-thingy below.

You don’t have to click on it.

But the ninjas will be disappointed in you.

  1. Good words, Brent – enjoyed your message.

    And I agree with you on the Christian book store. I do find Cokesbury to be far less … icky. Not sure if I’ve ever seen a Testamint there :) Or maybe it’s just my Methodist bias showing.
