Conflict and division within a congregation can lead to fraught moments for a preacher. Many in our churches harbor an unspoken belief is that the existence of conflict is a sign that something has gone wrong. When conflict hits, should preachers take sides? Be “prophetic”? Try to ease tensions or smooth things over? What if we could reimagine conflict as a normal part of life in community, and a moment where God might be speaking to us? In this workshop, we will explore our assumptions about conflict and its dynamics, and envision some opportunities conflict presents for the preacher.
