Dual Platform Future - Congregational Conflict

This video is a portion of the Conversations with Leaders: Dual Platform Future for All Ages webinar that was offered in April.

In this video, Patricia Infante, CER Staff in Lifespan Faith Development talks about conflict and how change and conflict are connected in our congregations.

In summary:
As our congregations look at changes, we will find that conflict and anxiety will emerge. We may find conflicts among families, our staff, between staff and leadership. We may find that people will have differing needs. Congregations will also find that during this time we have created accessibility for those who haven't had access in the past and how do we prioritize and maintain that accessibility while going back to in person activities.

During these next months leaders need to remember that there is no one right way and we need to lean into our covenants or other documents that we use to guide right relations. Healthy and transparent communications will be essential.
