Conflicts will arise in your congregation. Right now, you may be experiencing the storms of conflict, dealing with storm cleanup or trying to put a past conflict behind you. Although we can't prevent conflict from occurring altogether, we can develop skills to make sense of a past controversy, better understand a current situation, and promote forgiveness and healing. Use Our Community: Dealing with Conflict in Our Congregation on your own or with your congregation's council, committees, or staff. The book includes reproducible tools that can be downloaded and customized at www.augsburgfortress.org/CLS.
Our Community begins by looking at what conflict is and who we are as people of God, then discusses ways that we deal with conflict, healthy and unhealthy conflict, life skills, the role of the pastor and lay leaders in conflict situations, and how to heal and rebuild community.
