Session

Differences + Disagreements = Division? NO!

Session date: Friday 12th August 2016 Session time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm Session location: Bann Session track ,

The Church, like the rest of society, from time to time encounters conflict. All too often the way we deal with it becomes itself part of the problem. It does not have to end in tears, fractured relationships and resignations. The first century church had plenty of conflict – in fact conflict was often the birth pangs of new life and growth. Most of us can learn to “do conflict” better. This seminar will highlight and urge us into New Testament practices and away from twenty-first century “just be nice” theology.
