The Blessing Zone

Listen to, "The Blessing Zone" by Greg Sidders, Pastor, White Pine Community Church.

In this podcast we are going to discover the most powerful secret to better relationships.

I know, that sounds like hype. "Secret" is a word so often used as a tease--a promise of some kind of previously-hidden nugget of revelation that will make what you thought was a complex problem surprisingly simple to solve. Too often those who say they know "the secret" over-promise and under-deliver.

That's not the kind of secret I'm talking about. I'm talking about a biblical principle that that is obscured by the fact that it is rarely stated explicitly. It's an implicit principle--the skeletal frame underneath the skin of so many of the Bible's relational commands. Supporting all those passages about how to forge better relationships is a ... well, a secret ... and when you discover it, it won't make all your relational challenges magically disappear, but it will light the path to a more satisfying social network. I promise.
