Managing Conflict
Saturday, January 10, 2015

This workshop will allow us to work together as we examine how we currently deal with conflict with our instinctive or learned reactions to it. We will look at ways to work with people of varying conflict styles, and discover a method for working with groups who find themselves in the midst of conflict.

Request for Proposals
January 2015

The Presbytery of the Western Reserve in Northeast Ohio invites proposals for funding by the Presbyterian Self-Development of People program from local grass-roots groups who are organizing for their economic and social empowerment and to create a more just community.  By our support of such efforts we seek to show the love and justice of Jesus Christ, as reflected particularly in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 25.
