Letting a Bridesmaid Go: Part II

For issues of offense, my advice would be to act closely in line with the Matthew 18 principle of reproof. 1) Have a one-on-one conversation with your bridesmaid about the offense she has committed. This conversation should be sensitive in timing, location, and approach, but it should address the offense, the consequences of the offense, the request for correction in behavior, and the offer for help (if appropriate). 2) If your bridesmaid is resistant to your reproof, bring a legitimate third party who can gently corroborateyour claims. 3) Under the unfortunate occurrence that your bridesmaid is unwilling to acknowledge or correct her offense, consider taking the matter to the church, which could mean talking with her to a pastor or a Christian counselor or whatever is most appropriate.
