Reconnect: a mindful communication challengeOctober 2-30, 2016

Three filters for your mindful, healthy communication: Is it true? Is it kind? Is it useful?

Improve how you connect with others. Explore how our words, tone, and actions affect others.

Part 1 - Am I listening?

"The first service that one owes to others in the fellowship consists of listening to them. Just as love of God begins with listening to His Word, so the beginning of love for our brothers and sisters is learning to listen to them." (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

Part 2 - Is it true?

Part 3 - Is it kind?

Part 4 - Is it useful?

It's all about useful service. Use is love in action, and love in action is what, in the end, remains.

Part 5 - All are welcome!

You are invited! What kind of excuses do we present for avoiding what God offers us right now?
