Conflict is a normal part of our lives, but it’s messy and often painful, and so many of us would rather avoid it. But what if we learned how to respond creatively to conflict? With the right tools and approach, differences and disagreements can present invitations to lean in, learn, develop deeper connections, and foster healing in our relationships.
Love Is Moving is hosting a workshop on creative ways to work through conflict. In this workshop, led by Anna Vogt, co-director of Mennonite Central Committee’s Peace & Justice Office, you’ll gain some peace-building ideas and skills. This is an interactive discussion, so there will be time to ask questions and break out into small groups to practice using some of the tools we’ll talk about.
Join us on May 16 to learn some better ways you and your neighbours, friends, family members, or coworkers can relate to each other in the midst of differences.
