The Center for Leadership Excellence presents a Day of Learning with Ellen Ott Marshall…
Living Together in the Midst of Conflict
Conflict is a natural part of living together. Yet, it is our Christian calling to live well with one another through times of conflict. With tools and spiritual disciplines, we can choose faithful words and actions in the midst of ongoing and inevitable church conflict.
Join us for a Day of Learning as we explore how to navigate conflict by developing practices of self-awareness, grace-filled listening, and speaking truth in love.
Wednesday, March 18, 9am*-3pm (*9-9:30am is registration)
NC Conference Office (700 Waterfield Ridge Place, Garner)
BRING YOUR TEAM! We learn best when we learn together. Plus, when you bring three or more from your church, receive 20% off your total registration. You must register by March 11 to receive this discount.
This Day of Learning will give participants:
- An understanding of their own conflict style and resources for leading others through this essential self-assessment
- An example of a biblical reflection on conflict and a resource for creating their own Bible study
- Practical exercises for dialogue and resources for leading others in the spiritual discipline of listening
- Time to reflect together on theological resources for remaining hopeful in the midst of ongoing conflict
Spend the day with other clergy and laity, and find that in the midst of conflict, a gracious God is doing a new thing!
