No Man's Land: Why Is It Called No Man’s Land?

No Man's Land Med.jpg
 

This is the beginning of our new sermon series, “No Man’s Land” based on the book, Dancing in No Man’s Land: Moving with Peace and Truth in a Hostile World, by Brian Jennings.

There is a space in our culture that most of us are not comfortable living in: the space of openness and discussion about sensitive topics.. Our culture has no idea how to heal the division that exists, yet the Church should be the model and example of this.

THE SERMON

DRIVE HOME QUESTIONS

Use these questions to further explore the theme of the message:

Pray: Who is God leading you to reach out to that is disagrees with you on a divisive topic? Pray and ask the Lord to reveal to you who this is and to give you strength and courage to reach out to them.

Speak: How can you encourage those around you to get out of their bunkers and step out into No Man's Land? Who do you know that maybe God is calling you to speak out to and challenge their bunker mentality?

Grow: What divisive topics get you the most fired up? How can you grow in your maturity when it comes to pursuing conversations with others about these topics?

Love: How is God calling you to sacrifice non-essentials in order to maintain the unity of the body of Christ?
