I’ve Never Experienced a Blended Family

with Ron Deal | August 10, 2020

I meet people who can't relate to stepfamilies because they've never lived in one. Well, you're part of a church, right? Many churches look and feel like stepfamilies. They have a diverse membership from a variety of theological and ethnic backgrounds seeking a common worship style, belief, and practice. Or, when a church changes pastors they get a new stepparent, so to speak, with a different style that some welcome and others resent. Maybe you know more about blended families than you think.

A lot of churches these days look and feel like stepfamilies. They have a diverse membership from a variety of theological and ethnic backgrounds trying to find a common worship style, belief, and practice. Or what about when a church changes pastors they get a new stepparent, so to speak, with a different style that some members welcome and others resent. Maybe you know more about blended families than you think. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
