CityLife, the Pentecostal megachurch in Knox, operates a ministry to unattached Christians in the 30 to 39 age bracket called Emerge, with which I've had some involvement this year. On Saturday morning they held a breakfast which I attended. In a fun, light-hearted way, the point of the morning was to explore the often delicate issue of interaction and communication between the genders.
It wasn't intended to be a heavy duty teaching session, but from my point of view, it was worth getting up early and the 45 minute drive to attend, if only to hear some commonsense, practical advice on the subject, and also to socialise. I had no reason for being there apart from that. I'm most definitely not one of those predatory, interloper types who hops from church to church for the sole purpose of poaching a female member of their congregation, so to speak. When I had to explain to those on my table that I'm from another church, I hope they understood my motivation in being there, and that they had nothing to fear from me.
After enduring a couple of skits, which surely featured acting equal to the calibre of what you see on Home and Away, the audience was invited to submit questions on the topic of communication and relationships, which were answered by a panel of experts. The key thing said was to bear in mind what is the very essence of Christianity; to love your neighbour as yourself, or in other words, to treat them as you would like to be treated yourself. No matter how long you've been a Christian for, it doesn't hurt to be reminded of this again.
