CCM in Nigeria!
Have you heard the old adage--"It is more blessed to give than to receive"? That's how I feel having had the privilege of taking a stellar peacemaking team with me to Nigeria to teach lawyers and judges Christian Conciliation for a week long course, i.e. Conflict Coaching and Peacemaking. A big shout out to Anne Bachle Fifer, Scott Owen and Kevin Thornsberry! But we couldn't have done it without our Nigerian team on the ground. Thank you Paul, Favour, Josiah and Chika!
Last time I was there was in 2014 when I taught about 125 lawyers and judges a week long Peacemaking Seminar. I had just about given up on returning to teach mediation when miraculously a class-A team fell into place.
If you haven't read The Peacemaker by Ken Sande yet, I highly recommend it. It is the basis for our Christian Conciliation teaching.
"Blessed are the Peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." Matt. 5:9
