Ep 4 | Philippians & Colossians, Come Follow Me 2019 (Oct 14-20)
58 min

Paul is happy in Philippians (even though he is in prison). Why? Why is Paul so full of joy as he writes this text? How can Philippians teach me more about sacred ordinances and coming unto Jesus? Learn some cool Greek words: koinonia, summorphizo, and katalambano – see how these words relate to the temple. How does this text teach me more about the Lord and his plans in bringing us joy?

Colossians talks about Jesus and sounds very much like John 1.1-18. This was probably an early Christian hymn that was placed in this text showing readers what early Christians believed about Jesus. What was the heresy Paul was addressing in this text? Was this related to Gnosticism? What is Gnosticism? How does this relate to modern Latter-day Saints? To read the show notes on Colossians, go here.

Mike and Bryce address these questions (and more!) in this podcast. Many thanks to Jeff Harmon for helping us get the technical stuff worked out and Rachel Hood for making our logo! Great work!

When Leading with Others Results in Conflict | An Interview with Chad Ford
Chad Ford is best known as an analyst and entrepreneur covering the NBA and NBA Draft for ESPN. His primary work, however, is as a peacebringer, an international conflict mediator, college professor, and director of the David O. McKay Center for Intercultural Understanding at BYU-Hawaii. In this interview, Chad discusses the concepts in his book Dangerous Love: Transforming Fear and Conflict at Home, at Work, and in the World, and how they apply to church leadership. Highlights 4:00 Chad’s path to BYU Hawaii 6:30 The path to writing the book started with writing a textbook, then changing to writing it as stories that connect with people in a variety of circumstances 8:30 Written for a secular audience but doesn’t shy away from faith and religion 10:00 Connection with the Arbinger Institute 12:50 Leaders aren’t called because of their pastoral qualifications and training, but a lot of the day-to-day work in leadership revolves around conflict 14:30 Association of sin with conflict and contention leads to conflict avoidance 21:00 “Easy love” and relationships 23:00 Agape: the Greek notion of love described by Paul 25:30 Outward accommodation and keeping conflict inside is not love 26:30 The most difficult person is the person you actually need to get closest to 27:45 This is the calling of discipleship. This is what Christ does. We naturally pull away when people need us the most, when there is struggle and conflict. 30:35 Learning this concept from Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s call to love your enemies 34:15 This means I have to humbly seek to understand their experience and perspective 37:10 We need to see people we struggle with as people and not as objects. Chad’s own experiences missing this in his life and seeking to truly see at least one person each day. 44:50 The concept of “turning first”: choosing to see the person first and turning toward them, inviting them to connect 48:05 Example of the prodigal son and the father’s open arms 50:00 Example of reconciling with a man in the ward 52:00 We create justifications for loving people less, but can commit to loving more. “In the litany of sins, not loving one of our brothers and sisters is probably there at the top.” 54:10 The unsolvable conflict: you’ve probably tried all of the wrong things on the inside even as you do and say all of the “right” things on the outside 55:00 The seven why’s: Get deeply curious about people. Keep telling me why. 56:15 There can still be disagreement, and this is when you take the time and patience to seek to find the common ground 58:00 Failing to invite those labeled as the terrorist to the peacebuilding process. Unanimous decisions begin with exploring the perspective of others, as with the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. 1:01:00 When people do feel heard, valued, and seen, they are willing to make adjustments. This can’t be faked and must be felt at a deeper level through the hard work of intentionally building a relationship. 1:03:35 Dangerous love is always a struggle because we are imperfect, but the key is the humility to repent and reconnect. 1:04:30 We have the same stigma around conflict that we have around sinning. Repentance is a gift and our lives should be spent repenting, using this gift to correct relationships and not simply to correct outward sins. 1:07:30 Offering grace to others just as we receive it from Christ 1:10:50 Begin to encourage this by talking about what a Zion ward would look like and how we can build the relationships we need Links dangerouslovebook.com Dangerous Love: Transforming Fear and Conflict at Home, at Work, and in the World, by Chad Ford The Anatomy of Peace: Resolving the Heart of Conflict, by The Arbinger Institute Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting out of the Box, by The Arbinger Institute
