The Lombard Mennonite Peace Center and the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod (ELCA) are offering the Mediation Skills Training Institute for Church Leaders at Kinsmen Lutheran Church of Houston, Texas, September 10-14, 2012. The Institute is sponsored by the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod (ELCA), and is open to church leaders of all denominations.
I am attaching a brochure (MSTI Houston 9 10-14 2012 Brochure) with further information and a registration form, which can be printed or forwarded by email to be shared with others. In fact, I would encourage you to forward the brochure to pastors and lay leaders in your churches. Even if you are not able to attend yourself, there would be value in equipping people to be part of a mediation team, comprised of people who can assist you in dealing with conflict in your churches in the future. Please note that registration is through the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod (ELCA); the attached brochure provides the information for payment and registration.
