Transforming Conflict


Hi all,

There's a big difference between "being engaged in conflict" and "engaging conflict." And so, I'm curious: has your congregation intentionally worked at engaging conflict — transforming it from being a destructive force to becoming a constructive resource for growth?

I (together with my former congregation — First CRC of Orillia, ON) have been on an exciting journey with the help of Restorative Practices (see Shalem Mental Health Network). How about you? Let's share some stories to celebrate healing and provide resources to those who are hurting.

A training is coming up April 11-13, 2019 at Willoughby CRC in Langley, BC. Find out more here! Our prayer is that many more churches will begin using restorative practices, which help us to engage with one another respectfully whether we agree or disagree.
