Stewarding Differences and Conflict

In the video clips below, Epic Leadership Development Team member Karen Virtue discusses what it means to steward differences and conflict well, whether in teams, ministry, or our personal relationships.

“When We Sin” (Team and Relational Norms)

“Conflict Can Be Empowering” (Embracing the Opportunity)

Discussion Questions:

  • What does the word conflict/confrontation mean to you? In your cultural context?
  • How did you learn to respond to interpersonal sin or conflict in your family of origin?
  • In your current context (team, work, family, etc.), what are you teaching and modeling in relation to conflict and differences?
  • What happens when conflict is not dealt with?  What does it mean to honor God in the way we navigate differences and conflict?
