Notes & Transcripts

In Every Congregation Needs a Little Conflict, George Bullard writes, “Perceived truthful information is more powerful than truth. It is what people come to believe to be truth. It fits their preconceived notions. It fits their position on the conflict situation. They convince themselves and others that it is truth.”

- Every Congregation Needs a Little Conflict, Kindle Loc. 744-45 Illustration by Jim L. Wilson

As I reflect back on conflicts I’ve had in my life, I’m convinced that I wasn’t as right as I thought I was, and they weren’t as wrong as I thought they were. It reminds me today that I need to guard against taking unmovable positions and listen to others when they speak.

Proverbs 15:1 (CEV) A kind answer soothes angry feelings, but harsh words stir them up.
