Addressing Conflict

Bringing peace to your community.

Conflict happens.  Sometimes it’s arrival is seen, heard and felt.  Sometimes it disappears as quickly as it appears.  Sometimes one can’t imagine or remember a time without it. Sometimes the heaviness of a pretend peace seems like the only option…a shared normal that doesn’t feel good.

And…there are better ways to work through conflict to transform it for good.  The Michigan Conference is ready to help create the possibilities for true, God-given peace.
