‘In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us.’ ~2 Corinthians 5:19
How we respond to conflict is one of the biggest challenges we face. Often it’s assumed a ‘Christian’ response to conflict is to be nice. But how did Jesus himself respond to the people and institutions who came up against him, didn’t understand him, tried to silence him, sought to trick him and to ultimately defeat him? During this retreat, we’ll explore each of the four Gospels, looking at the life of Christ through the lens of conflict, peace-making and reconciliation. We’ll explore through study, drama and discussion.
