SMBC Pastoral Care – Guest session on Conflict in Christian Communities

Great to spend the evening with students in the Pastoral Care class at Sydney Missionary and Bible College in Croyden, We explored unique features of conflict in churches, Jesus’ teaching on conflict in Matthew’s gospel, the constituent parts of conflict and how to care for those experiencing conflict and respond to conflict in churches. The notes from our three sessions are linked below.
