This is a gentle reminder about the workshop on Dealing Constructively with Conflict in the Church with Tim Dyer this Friday evening and Saturday.
When we pause to think about the amount of time and energy, and the heartache and relational damage that results when conflict is not dealt with appropriately in our churches, it immediately becomes obvious just how important it is for us to do better in this regard. And we need to do better not just so we can have a more tranquil life together, but because the very integrity of our identity as Christian communities is at risk when we become entangled in conflict and disharmony. The Apostle Paul puts it bluntly; “If … you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another." [Galatians 5:15]
This workshop, and the others that will follow in the next 12 months are designed specifically for us:
• to learn how to deal constructively and effectively with situations of conflict in our congregations
• to increase our capacity to engage conflict maturely as a movement
• to build churches which minimise the occurrence destructive conflict
Tomorrow (Tuesday May 10th) is the last opportunity to register your intention to attend. Are you attending? Have you encouraged anyone else to attend? Please give this your prayerful consideration.
