    Rest for the Weary 07: Dealing with Difficult People with Jamie Dunlop

    Rest for the Weary 07: Dealing with Difficult People with Jamie Dunlop

    Today we’re talking to Jamie Dunlop about one of the things that we can all probably say contributes to weariness in our lives: dealing with difficult people. Instead of running away from the relationships that drive us crazy, Jamie encourages us to pursue unity in Christ and to build genuine friendships across all of our differences as an opportunity to display the power of the gospel. Jamie serves as Associate Pastor at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC, and is the author of Love the Ones Who Drive You Crazy. We pray this conversation encourages you to extend a hand of friendship across the aisle and move toward members of your local church in love.
