Calm : How To End Destructive Conflict In Your Church


Guide your church to proactively make decisions and deal with conflict. Calm: How to End Destructive Conflict in Your Church is a guidebook written for United Methodist churches and church leaders to help them proactively make decisions and deal with conflict. This book equips pastors and other leaders with the skills and tools necessary to engage in critical conversations that lead to healthy communities–churches that remain God-focused in times of conflict and tension. In addition to the four Modules, Calm includes the practical resources pastors, judicatory leaders, and others will need to lead congregations through the Modules. The Modules contain step-by-step instructions for planning and facilitating the Module sessions. They include detailed instructions and helpful tips for leading people through the Calm process of group activities, discussion, reflection, and times of worship. The book is a complete guide for leading this process, including instructions for the pastor and facilitator, helping to ensure success. The authors also provide clear adaptations for groups gathering virtually – an inescapable reality in the life of today’s church. These adaptations both underscore and equip groups to take special care while engaging in the sensitive nature of conflict work in a virtual space.
