The Five Stages of Communicating & Connecting

Taking Today’s Talk Home:

 In Sunday’s talk we discussed the five stages of communication:

  1. Being Polite.
  2. Sharing Information & Facts.
  3. Sharing Ideas & Opinions.
  4. Sharing Feelings & Emotions.
  5. Sharing Truth.

*Read Galatians 6:10.

**Think about the five stages of communication and connecting with one another. When you think of your relationship with others, can you identify them according to these stages?

***Pray that God would increase your capacity to trust others and increase your ability to be transparent with others. Pray, also, that God would direct you to people in your life that you can care for.

Prayer Focus for the Week:

Dear God,

Thank you for the people you have placed in my life. I’m so grateful for my family, my friendship & my church family. Lord, I want my life to be a direct reflection of Your love. Thank you for displaying and demonstrating Your love for me by sacrificing Your life. With that display and demonstration in mind, let my life display and demonstrate Your love. As I seek to care for those around me, give me the courage to trust people and to take the time to get to know them better. Increase my capacity for love and for trust. I know that I can’t do this on my own. I need You. So, today, I trust You.

In Jesus’ Name…Amen.

Preparing for NEXT Sunday:

Next week we discuss: SERVE one another.

*Take time this week to read: Galatians 5:13, 1 Peter 4:10 & Hebrews 10:24.

**Think about the best waiter/waitress experience you’ve had…what made that experience so memorable?

***Think about the last time you were selfish about something…what’s the opposite of being selfish?

***Google this or ask Siri this…how many different body parts are there?
