This month we start a new core course Conflict Management and our text: The Peacemaker by Ken Sande. Peacemakers are people who breathe grace. They draw continually on the goodness and power of Jesus Christ, and then they bring his love, mercy, forgiveness, strength, and wisdom to the conflicts of daily life. God delights to breathe his grace through peacemakers and use them to dissipate anger, improve understanding, promote justice, and encourage repentance and reconciliation. I will email you the pdf workbook for this course. Your first post will be up on the forum by Monday, October 17th.
Congratulations to Todd Adams (Pen M) for completing Level II!
Our core course this month is Conflict Management and our text: The Peacemaker by Ken Sande. This is a practical primer on how obedience to God’s Word can change deadlock into restoration in families, churches, workplaces, neighborhoods and even prisons. So often we see those who are not on “speaking terms” with other members of a family or avoid coming in contact with certain members of the church because of some problem that happened years ago. This study opens one’s mind and soul to the way of life Jesus lived and taught. There is a way to live peacefully with others without having to compromise the goals Christ has set for His followers, or members of His body.
Remember to print and fill-in the workbook as you go through the course. Your first post will be up on the forum Monday, January 18th. You’ll make an initial post and respond to someone’s post.
Congratulations Rob Helfer (Vero Beach) and Nick and Rachel Aylor (Southwest Florida) for moving on to your electives!
