“Conflict is more neutral than negative. What we do with conflict can be constructive or destructive. My desire is to reinvent conflict as an instrument for personal and group discoveries. Through thoughtful conflict engagement we can learn how to improve and develop better and healthier relationships at work, in the family and within the church. My personal journey through difficult and destructive conflict positions me to help others find a flashlight to walk through shadows of conflict and benefit from its contribution. This requires self-reflection, a secure environment and a process to facilitate healthy communication about conflict. Those who do the hard work of peacemaking will be considered sons and daughters of God.”
