Overview

In Philippians 4:2—3, two women encounter conflict while serving in Paul's evangelistic ministry in Philippi and they are unable to work out their problems on their own. They had not yet learned the art of agreeing to disagree.

Women—and men—may not admit to having disagreements or conflicts but the very lack of admission to this inevitable aspect of relationships accentuates the tremendous need for learning how to deal with conflict. People—including those who develop a close relationship of any kind--will disagree eventually. However, when women avoid resolving disagreements, relationships end without reconciliation and this compromises ministry success.

Face-to-Face with Euodia and Syntyche explores the causes of conflict and how Christians can biblically achieve a resolution and reconciliation.
