Conflict is a normal part of life. It arises in our workplaces, in our churches and with our families.

To help people learn to work through divisive issues, Mennonite Central Committee U.S. has produced a new adult Sunday school curriculum, Peaceful Practices: A guide to healthy communication in conflict. It invites churchgoers to follow Jesus’ call to peacemaking through dialogue with each other.

This curriculum includes nine sessions. Each session contains a peaceful practice, a biblical reflection, a conflict transformation tool, at-home reflection questions, a group activity, a closing blessing and resources to go deeper.
