Notes & Transcripts

The reality is that conflict is present and can be both useful and debilitating.  The following generalizations can be made about our current conflict and ways of coping with it:

•           Conflict is real, persistent, and sometimes mean.

•           Conflict can be normal, abnormal, or spiritual.

•           Conflict can escalate into abuse and inflict collateral damage.

•           Conflict can be managed poorly or well.

•           Effective conflict management is not yet the norm in congregations or judicatories.

Clergy Killers, G.Lloyd Rediger, page 48
