Mike Emlet sits down and answers the question “How do we love people who use suffering as an excuse for sin?”
When we help each other, we listen. That is natural in close relationships and it is easy. Could anything be more basic? But, like all other aspects of godly wisdom, listening takes a lifetime to master. We can all do it, but we all want to do it better. Ed responds to the question “How do I listen well as a friend?” in this short video.
Small groups. Growth groups. Mini-churches. Community groups. Cell groups. Accountability groups. Home groups. Missional communities. Mini-flocks. No matter what you call them, most churches of any size highlight the importance of meeting together in smaller communities within the local church. How do I cultivate meaningful relationships in my small group? Mike responds to this question in this short video.
