Mend First by Raymond A. Foss
For some, on the way to communion,
to be made whole, to mend first
to come before the table
before offering, before receiving
a gift to God, a healing word
confession, forgiving
mending the breach
with a brother, a sister
coming together
healed, before the table of God

Matthew 18:15-22
Romans 12:17-18
James 3:1-18
Matthew 5:24
and second in a two-part sermon series entitled
“Sensitivity Training II: When Church Folk Don’t Get Along.”
Peter said he “was not preaching this sermon because we are having difficulty with this issue. I am preaching it because I firmly believe the best time to consider matters such as this is when tensions are not high and we can reflect on good spiritual practices that can keep our relationships healthy. The middle part of Matthew 18 offers a good plan for conflict resolution.”
