(View recording) October 14, 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. “Conflict Transformation” – Sermon by Rev. Dr. Terasa Cooley. For many people the words “conflict” and “congregation” are opposites. How can a community that is supposed to be a place of safety and sanctuary end up with conflicts? But of course, conflict happens. It happens because we humans are different from one another! Terasa will explore how conflict can actually be a source of transformation.
