THIS SUNDAY, aswecontinue our sermon series, Relational Wisdom, from the book of Proverbs, we’ll be looking at God’s principles on maintaining and repairing our relationships with others.


All of us have wobbly, if not downright broken, relationships in our lives, at one time or another. Whether it be at work, in your neighborhood, at church, in your family or even marriage, there are those you used to be close to but aren’t anymore.


This second to last message in this series has the potential to tune-up and even do a major overhaul on our relationships as we look closely at the insight and instructions God gives us in Proverbs.
