The most commonly requested resources on my mentoring and leadership websites are to do with interpersonal and organisational conflict. I have organised these now onto a new website called Peace Train (i.e get some training around peacemaking skills…) This will become my new home for peacemaking, reconciliation, conflict resolution and forgiveness resources. Hope they are useful.
Wonderful to meet the new officers assigned to corps in the north of the state today at ETC. We spent some time reflecting on the nature of “shalom” and then listened to each other’s stories and background. The topic for reflection today was self care practices in ministry.
I enjoy my opportunities to teach in the Arrow Leadership program. Always good to hang out with a choice collection of Bulls, Turtles, Koalas, classic Owls and this year a lone Turtle.
I have added some material from today’s discussions to what was linked via this post this morning. All the best as you prepare for action.
