Last week I had the privilege of preaching two messages at Morningview Baptist Church’s 2020 Marriage and Family Conference. The audio for those messages is below. The first message examines some dynamics found within unhealthy, sinful (perhaps even abusive) relationships. This sermon certainly relates to romantic relationships, but is not limited to just that; these dynamics may be found between siblings, friends, co-workers, and any other human relationship. The second message lays out some practical steps for helping others bear burdens that they are carrying.
Much of this wisdom is drawn from others, especially: Lundy Bancroft and Pastor Tom Hicks. I am indebted to both of those men, especially the latter, for what was presented here.
