Praise the Lord Trinity! I pray that you and your family have experienced the grace and mercy of our awesome God in supernatural ways this week. I know you have come ready to enter His gates with thanksgiving in your heart, and have prepared yourself to give God the fruit of your lips in His courts. This morning as we gather to worship God in spirit and in truth let me express my gratitude to our guest worshipping with us today. You are welcome here at the Trinity Church and I pray God's richest blessings upon you and your families. If you and/or your family are looking for a Church home, we welcome you with open arms to this versatile ministry & multi-generational experience. Everybody needs a church family and a pastor. We want to be yours! Trinity family St. Benedict declares let all guests who come to our church be received like Christ. For He is going to say, I came as a guest, and you received me.
Trinity, God wants to encourage those of us on the marriage journey. Communication is a key to working marriage. There are five communication killers that we need to be aware of. First, presence of fear, people are afraid of being rejected or made fun of. So they naturally won't open up. People are afraid to open up because if they expose themselves as they really are, and they are made to feel bad for doing so, they won't open up again. Second, lack of honesty. We all put a mask on at some point or another and we play a role like an actor...for acceptance. The danger with this is you can lose touch with yourself. Next, when our spouse points out our deficiencies, we grasp at something to cover up. Tears can be used to coerce, often by women, but some men can do it as well. That can be manipulation, not communication. Next, failure to listen, the fourth communication killer is the failure to listen. A message sent must be a message received, or communication is killed. Finally, sound of silence, the fifth communication killer is silence or pouting. Have you ever been given the "silent treatment"? We hold it in. Doctors tell us that this type of reaction is a leading cause of ulcers, high blood pressure, and divorce.
