School For Lay Ministry Final Advanced Class

The final Advanced Class will be held on March 9-10 at Cornell College. The class is entitled "The Spirit and Art of Conflict Transformation." 
 
"Transforming conflict into a positive rather than a negative force is a spiritual pursuit and needs to be grounded in biblical principles: love of God, neighbor, and self.  We will explore how to prepare ourselves for the work of engaging conflict and how to engage others in conflict transformation, outlining specific processes. Interwoven with the practical instructions are stories that illustrate the potential for this new "just peace" approach."
 
Participants will need to order and read "The Spirit and Art of Conflict Transformation" by Thomas Porter. ISBN 9780835810265. This book is available through the Upper Room Bookstore, Amazon.com and Cokesbury.
