Conflict Transformation Workshop for Churches
The Southwestern PA Synod of the ELCA is sponsoring a workshop on Conflict Transformation for churches on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Freeport, PA. The workshop is designed by the Lombard Mennonite Peace Center and will be facilitated by the Rev. Kimberly van Driel and the Rev. Peter Asplin.
Conflict is a normal part of life, even in the church. Every congregation, every business, every family, and most church softball leagues experience conflict at one point or another. When conflict is handled well, it can be an opportunity to move relationships, ministries, and congregations forward. In this workshop, you will discuss a framework for understanding conflict, how you can best communicate in the midst of it, and how congregations can make good decisions when differences arise.
