The Understanding and Managing Conflict II workshop will be held at The Billabong Uniting Church on Friday 12 October from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
As Christians, we are called to work together to create shalom – peace and wholeness of community. But as we all know, this is easier said than done. Shalom is lost when church conflict occurs and when people exercise power in destructive ways.
As we learned in our first Conflict Awareness workshop, the place to begin is by understanding not only the nature of conflict but of ourselves and our own responses to conflict. We concluded by looking at some ways of exercising power and handling conflict which are in accord with the values and principles we embrace as Christians.
Our second workshop on Conflict Management will include:
- Behavioural covenants
- Correctly identifying the level of conflict (problem to solve; fight/flight; contest; disagreement)
- Appropriate interventions
- Creating environments with the possibility for reconciliation
This is the second Understanding Management and Conflict workshop run by Rev Elizabeth Raine and Rev Dr Anne Wright.
Cost is $10.00 and registration is available on the above link. Those who missed the first workshop and would like to attend this one are asked to contact Elizabeth on firstname.lastname@example.org.
