Coming in 2023: Lombard Mennonite Peace Center will be offering a new one-day workshop called “Restorative Conversations: Storytelling, Healing and Community Building.”

This workshop will introduce church leaders to the key concepts of circle processes and ways in which circles can be used within their congregations. Restorative conversations are useful when working through difficult or polarizing topics, processing shared painful experiences, building community, and dealing with certain levels of conflict in the church setting.

Three sessions of this workshop have been scheduled for next year: Feb. 23, May 23, and Nov. 2, 2023. A flier with more information is available: 2023 Restorative-Conversations-Flier
