We were privileged to have the Rev. James Dunn, former Executive Director of the Baptist Joint Committee on Public Affairs in Washington, DC, and our own Rev. Dayle Scott, former staff member for ABCW, ABC/USA and ABSW lead us in "How to Get Along: Dealing with Difference in the Church," a model of how to deal with conflict in the church.

Patterned on the format of the current Jerusalem Council process being used by the Ministers Council nationwide, the process included "lectio divina," a slow and meditative reading of the 15th chapter of Acts.

Sixteen members of the Ministers Council attended, and all felt that it had been a wonderful time of reflection, prayer, and strengthening our relationships in ministry.

Thanks to Rev. Ray Miller of Alameda First for providing photos of the day.
