The Presbytery of Newark is looking for churches interested in participating in a one-day workshop on conflict transformation skills.
The Newark Presbytery is at a crossroads and is intentionally leveraging our best self and deciding how we want to show up for the next generations. We are offering an opportunity for all congregations to prepare for the inevitable human conflict that enters our lives, even in the church. This is not just for churches in conflict now; everyone will benefit from learning these skills as we all navigate critical conversations in all facets of life.
We will share with you the materials of the Lombard Mennonite Peace Center presented by facilitators trained in transforming conflict from a negative mindset to one of inclusivity, creativity, and curiosity. We will also learn more about what mediation is in the church and when to use it most effectively.
If your church is interested in participating or would like more information, please see the flyer below and email Karen Noble.
