Relationships v Religion
CCYC
February 19, 2022

Seesaws represent the kind of interaction that leads toward relationships. We try to replace these interactions with other things. This workshop is about the balance of the space between.

  • Space isn’t ; it’s full of meaning and plays a major role in shaping your relationships.

Relationships are just as as seesaw’s.

FOUR SPACES OF RELATIONSHIPS AND WHAT TO DO IN THEM

Public = feet +
Social = to feet
Personal = inches to feet
Intimate = 0 to inches

What are the social media equivalents to each?

1. PUBLIC SPACE
Public communities often form around common interests or experiences. Specific times, events, or places.

How many public communities are you a part of?
You’re actually part of the CCYC community this weekend.
Example: Matthew 8:5-13 Centurion soldier and Jesus

You can belong before you believe.

No one should feel like a stranger, even if they start anonymous.

2. SOCIAL SPACE
the space where we share “snapshots” of who we are.  No longer anonymous

This space has value for three reasons:
1. It provides safe selection space for us to decide whom we’d like to go deeper with.
2. It provides a way for us to present ourselves as we would like to be recognized.
3. It provides us plenty of opportunity to serve people.

1 Corinthians 9:22 

3. PERSONAL SPACE
Private, but not naked. People in this space are considered “close friends”.

How many close friends can someone have? How many did Jesus have?

4. INTIMATE SPACE
Each person knows the ‘naked truth’ about the other.  There is no persona or shame.

Where is this intimacy experienced in the Bible?

Naked is not just a physical concept.

RELATIONSHIPS OVER RELIGION
The goal of community is to maintain harmonious connection and balance between all four spaces.
