Why did Jesus gather disciples who probably hated each other? What did this have to do with God's mission? And what can we learn from the Prince of Peace?
Cyd and Geoff talk with Dan White Jr, author of Love over Fear: Facing Monsters, Befriending Enemies, and Healing Our Polarized World.
They talk about why we don't need better “conflict resolution” skills. Rather, we need better “dealing with our fear” skills—because while love cast fear (1 John 4:18), it is also true that fear casts out love.
Concluding Challenge: If you are feeling spiritually dry. Just take a step toward someone you consider an enemy, or who thinks you are their enemy.
