A few months ago we had a nasty fight break out during our public open gym time. We closed our gym down for a few days as a result. After opening back up the common theme we heard was, “most places would have kicked us out for good.” This line always opened the door to the topics of grace and mercy. One of the guys who was a major player in the fight came back to apologize, and we allowed him to rejoin the open gym after a brief time away. During this discussion I was able to share the gospel with him from Creation to Second coming and everything in between. I share all this to encourage you to lean into conflict as ministry leaders. Don’t run from obstacles but tackle them head on because God can and will use these opportunities for his glory.
