Conflict Resolution Training

Conflict is all around us, and even in us. Would you like to know how you can have God's peace in your life? Come find out this Wednesday night at "Life Streams." Last week, Pastor Tae Shin began a short three weeks series on Conflict Resolution. I had the privilege of joining him and Pastor Don Barkely in a panel discussion with the audience about sources of conflict.

I'll be joining the pastors for the next two weeks as we discuss styles of conflict and forgiveness & moving on.

Come join us for a delicious dinner and stimulating topic discussion. Check out the Life Streams website for more info for location and time.
