05/19/2019 Wrestling with Conflict

Rev. Jason Lydon

Conflict is an inevitable aspect of life. We have conflict within ourselves, with our loved ones, with strangers, with the person driving too slowly on Lake Shore Drive, and with so many others. Conflict does not inevitably create harm or despair, and yet it certainly can. If we are committing to be in community with one another, how might we engage in conflict lovingly? When we bring our full selves into a space, what wisdom can we find in our faith to shape how we handle conflict?
