Reading about congregations as systems, and as organizations, can help in understanding how tensions in congregational life can be the seed of positive changes and growth.
Reading about constructive ways to engage the congregation and channel conflict into positive energy can bring about transformative change. Understanding can help minimize the negative impact of some conflicts on the congregation.
Below are listed some resources for specific congregational situations that give rise to anxiety and can result in conflicts. Additionally your district staff can assist in these cases.
More situations, topics, and resources will be added to this list over time.
