We need each other to reflect his image most fully. And because of that, when we do things together - each of us bringing the best of our genders to honor the God who made us so different and yet so compatible - exciting things can happen.
But of course men and women don't always lunch or work or minister or live together well. Since the time of Adam and Eve this "alliance" has hit a few snags, to say the least. Snags that each of us have experienced in our work life, ministry life, or even home life. Snags that sometimes blur our understanding of the wonderful working relationship God originally intended for men and women.
One of the many reasons why I'm so excited about the Synergy conference in Orlando next weekend is that we'll be exploring this theme: "Your Relationships in the Story: Recovering the Blessed Alliance." It's not too late for you to join us. (For more information, click here.)
But in the meantime, I'd love to hear your experiences of working with men and handling differences in communication and work styles. What are your good experiences? What are the bad?
Hope to see you at in Orlando!
