Item Description...
Overview
You love your work. You love the people--most of the time. They respect you, most of the time. You work together with colleagues, staff, and laity, with energy and enthusiasm, most of the time. But then something goes wrong: a word spoken in anger, a misunderstanding, and things turn sour. What do you do? How do you deal with conflict, whether it be long or short-term, low or high intensity? Conflict is a part of the human predicament, yet it need not define or control your ministry. This book is designed to help the reader ask certain key questions about the nature and scope of the conflict they are experiencing and, based on the answers to those questions, move beyond conflict. The author lays out the variety of responses to conflict, running the gamut from avoidance to accommodation to compromise to collaboration. Written with the real needs of congregations in mind, this book will serve as a reliable guide to all who wish to move through conflict into a more effective and authentic fulfillment of their calling.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A seminal and thoroughly "reader friendly" study on the issues and dealings of conflict within church  Apr 7, 2006
In State Of Becoming: From Contention To Collaboration by Norma Cook Everist (Professor of Church Administration and Educational Ministry at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa) is a seminal and thoroughly "reader friendly" study on the issues and dealings of conflict within church. Informatively engaging readers from first page to last, In State Of Becoming deftly covers commonly controversial issues affecting the church and effective, practical, and tactics with which to avoid, ameliorate, or positively assist in resolving disputative issues for the betterment of the churches larger interests. In State Of Becoming is very highly recommended to the clergy and laity of the Christian congregation for the coordination and progression of the church through its many likely and inevitable controversies.
