All people live with conflicts, great and small. Christ followers are no exception. When we embrace the reality of conflict, seeking to understand ourselves and the conflicts in our communities, while at the same time grounding ourselves in the peace of Christ, we can navigate conflicts with courage, wisdom, humility and grace.
