We sometimes experience painful conflicts with loved ones, family members, friends, co-workers or members of our community. In the world we see that navigating such conflicts can be difficult, often leading to the cessation of communications, turmoil in relationships, pain, anger, hostility and even violence. The ability to open dialogue for ourselves and others in face of conflicts can create pathways to new learning and to deeper understanding. Dialogue is a foundation of conflict resolution, to building and maintaining loving relationships and to promoting peace. Yet opening to dialogue can be challenging, especially when conflicts emerge from different values and/or life experiences. This forum, facilitated by David Castro, will offer practical strategies for opening pathways to dialogue. David has more than twenty years of experience training leaders in dialogic approaches to conflict resolution and team building. The forum will start after worship services at approximately 11:20 AM on Sunday September 11th.
