I'm excited about my new seven-part blog series on Making Conflict Transformational: https://ministrylift.ca/conflict. This has been a work in progress for several years, as I have tried to apply biblical peacemaking principles and practices to my life and ministry. During our current pandemic, some of our relationships may be even more strained than they would be under normal circumstances. Hopefully, the ideas in this series will help all of us make the most of our conflict situations.
