Cant We All Just Get Along
Canâ€™t We All Just Get Along
Families are complicated. Just think of your own extended family. Itâ€™s a mess, right? Churches are made up of multiple messy families. Worse yet, those families are expected to work together as a great big extended family. And the pastor is supposed to preside over it all. Oh yeah, and the pastorâ€™s own nuclear family is a part of this great big family. So should we be surprised when there are problems? This book will explain how to navigate the treacherous waters of family systems and make your church stronger in the process.
