Restoring Relationships in Congregations

By LoraKim Joyner

In marriage we have vows and in congregations we have behavioral covenants. Without intention and agreements on how to process disagreements and conflicts, vows and covenants can end up meaningless, or even harmful. In other words, we need to agree on how to fight, for fight we will. In this workshop we explore how to make our behavioral covenants work for us through ongoing training and practice in social and emotional intelligence, and restorative practices. This workshop might especially appeal to Committees on Ministry and Right Relations teams. Bring your real life relationship challenges and we will work on them together. 2015
