The Kansas Institute of Peace and Conflict Resolution (KIPCOR), located in Newton, Kan., will be offering the class “Managing Differences Within Faith Communities” on January 29-30, 2013. Download the flier.

Difference and disagreement are normal and inevitable. Resilient congregations know this. Still, many of us feel ill prepared to handle conflict within our faith communities. In this course you will learn how to transform conflict into spiritual and community renewal , focusing on: biblical and theological principles; congregations as family systems; levels of conflict within faith communities; collaborative and transparent decision-making principles; structured dialogue in high-anxiety situations; and congregational discernment processes.

Explore these issues and develop practical techniques for working effectively with these ever-present dynamics.

This is a GREAT opportunity for your congregation to consider! Take a look! Special fee rates are offered for congregations that send more than one member.
