Conflict Transformation Skills for Churches (May 20, 2017, Hinsdale, IL)
Lombard Mennonite Peace Center is again hosting its Conflict Transformation Skills for Churches workshop. Conflict is a normal part of life, even in the church. Understanding this can help church members realize that they should not be surprised or ashamed when they experience conflict in their faith communities. What is important is how the conflicts that inevitably arise are addressed. The Conflict Transformation Skills for Churches workshop teaches some basic skills that will help participants manage conflicts within their congregations in a healthier manner.

The goal of the workshop is prevention. We want participants to gain the understanding and the skills needed to prevent destructive conflicts. We also want participants to see how church conflict can be transformed into an opportunity to learn something new about Gods will for their church.

The workshop on Conflict Transformation Skills for Churches is being offered by Lombard Mennonite Peace Center as part of its ongoing mission "to proclaim Christ's good news, the gospel of peace and justice, and to be active in the sacred ministry of reconciliation."
