Our world today is creating and generating discussion on any topic you might think of. Video blog discussion on ways to streamline your work-day, e-books written to share travel tips, and podcasts to share thoughts on popular culture trends.
In 2016, Dr. Chris Grace and Dr. Tim Muehlhoff began to add to the conversation in a podcast focused solely on relationships. The Art of Relationships' hosts regularly weigh in on how to navigate the complexities of relationships in our culture with biblical wisdom and scholarly research.
Our culture does not show how to handle disagreements well. Have you noticed? We are continually told that everyone can have their own perspective, but if you tell someone that you are right and they are wrong, that is close-minded or hurtful. We need to learn how to express our opinions and respect the opinions of others in a humble way that will encourage conversation rather than be divisive.
Friends are those people that we do everyday life with. We live or work near each other, we do ministry together, we frequently connect online, or we work out in the same gym. This proximity helps us grow and sustain the relationship, and such “mere presence” leads to increased liking. And this often leads to growing feelings of closeness or intimacy. Is there a point that becomes too close? Should those relationships be set aside completely? Dr. Chris Grace explains some of his thoughts and insight on how these friendships influence a marriage relationship!
