Forming Peaceable Congregations
Facilitator: Tom Yoder Neufeld
Date: November 12-13, 2019
Time: 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Location: Conrad Grebel University College
To which biblical passages do we turn when we are hurting and angry? What do judgment, mercy and forgiveness mean when the Body of Christ is torn by conflict?
This workshop assumes that the Bible is a critical conversation partner when we experience conflict in our congregation. As a group, participants will be invited to wrestle theologically and biblically toward a theology of healing, hope and transformation.
