Many of us dread engaging in conflict because it is uncomfortable, frightening, and seems destructive. Yet conflict engaged in well is a crucial ingredient of building more loving relationships on the personal and community level. UCM member Ginny Sassaman, who has a Masters in Mediation and Conflict Studies, has heartfelt and practical suggestions to follow the path of love by facing conflict with courage and compassion. Music will be provided by local musician Marc Gwinn singing “What the World Needs Now,” and the UCM choir singing a new musical setting of our congregational covenant, by Donia Prince.
