Part 3 of a 3 part series. In this third and final installment of their article series on marital conflict, Sironi and Whitman invite us to see that God’s plan to unify all things under Christ has meaningful implications for everyday marital strife. Building on instructions in 1 Peter 3, they frame conflict as suffering and describe concrete ways couples can move toward each other in it. They bring the case study from the previous articles to a compelling close, providing guidance on how a counselor facilitates Christian unity. Part 1 is in JBC 32:1, Part 2 is in JBC 32:3 and Part 3 is in JBC 34:2.
