Embrace Webinar #26
Join us for a conversation with Tim Muehlhoff and Richard Langer on their book Winsome Conviction: Disagreeing Without Dividing the Church, a recommended resource of the ECC’s Develop Leaders mission priority. In today’s polarized context, how can Christians navigate disagreements with one another – especially when they have committed, biblical rationales for very different positions? How do we discern between core biblical convictions and “secondary” matters, and what implications does that have for ecclesial life? How do we cultivate better understanding and compassion for those we disagree with? And when might parting ways be the most faithful approach to preserve Christian unity? Muehlhoff and Langer glean lessons from conflict theory and church history about how to pursue negotiate differing biblical convictions, repair interpersonal ruptures, and glorify God in our conflicts. Let’s grow in our ability to navigate differences while speaking both truth and love.
