What is the best way to view and deal with conflict?
Even if it’s uncomfortable, even painful, conflict is a necessary part of the most loving, harmonious, and united relationships. It’s not something inherently bad or dangerous. The Bible is packed with records of conflicts, from Adam and Eve, to Abraham, to Moses, to the prophets, to Jesus, and particularly among early Christian communities. Today’s youth are learning to see conflict as a positive force for transformation, and this study can help them learn how to respond with skill and insight. It is through an appreciation of differences that we can bring life, excitement, and positive change to our relationships. (5 sessions, plus extender session)
