I let her know my mthr & aunt lft Mississippi eight or nine yrs old, & my granddad was a Military man, we have property.She said her family was to poor couldn't buy land how did my family(unsaid being black)get land.

I talked to pastor's wife re the cnvrstn & how I wasn't pleased w/her bringing up the South frm of life in the early 1900s.

If it were me I would still attend the church but bring it to the pastor's attention. Anyone of color would be offended by her comments and her words make the puts that particular church in a negative light, especially with her being the pastor's mother. I am a "look you in the eye and have a conversation" kind of guy so I would ask the pastor if she shares her views. If he does I could no longer in good faith attend that church. But if he does not he needs to address his mother about her words because they are highly offensive to people of color and everyone may not hear her words and turn the other cheek, especially in today's times. Continue to pray for her that God ministers to her heart but do not charge the pastor or the church with her words when they may not even know she is speaking like this or agree with her. Hope this helps my friend.

Q

Please what does the Bible mean by saying we should not grief the HolySpirit

A

It simply means that we are not to cause the Holy Spirit to have sorrow because of our ungodly behavior. In Ephesians 4:25-32 speaks of these ungodly acts.

There is no one thing that makes a great relationship because each of us has our own definition of what a great relationship consists of. Like making a cake, there are many important ingredients which include love, trust, honesty, etc.
