Conflict Resolution

Our morning was filled with talk of spiritual fitness and money matters like insurance and payroll.  After lunch, the topic was conflict resolution.  Just the thought of conflict makes my stomach become a tight ball.  I hate conflict and I try to avoid it.  So as you can guess this was a good class for me.  We were reminded that conflict is normal, inevitable, and healthy when dealt with in an appropriate and timely way.   Conflict can also be an opportunity for ministry.  I learned about the stages of conflict and trying to figure out triggers that can  affect how I relate to others.  I am sure we will have plenty of opportunities to  practice these new skills in the months to come.  – Teresa
