It’s uncanny how the Gospels and the Epistles take on new relevance as we apply them to different situations in life — such as facing conflict as a network leader! Given that conflict is a challenge in most networks at one time or another, understanding how to management disagreements and conflict is an essential skill for a network leader. In this Bible devotion, we reflect on the Apostle Paul’s admonitions in Philippians 4:1-9 and examine their relevance for reconciliation and peacebuilding in network leadership.
Network leaders will find this piece on Philippians 4 helpful for preparing a network devotion on conflict, facilitating a network discussion on reconciliation and peacebuilding, or simply as a thought-provoking article to send to your network.
