The Duke Center for Reconciliation, in partnership with the Conflict Transformation Ministries of the N.C. Conference of the United Methodist Church, will host a discussion and brown-bag lunch with the Rev. Chris Brady, pastor at Wilson Temple United Methodist Church in Raleigh N.C., a Divinity School alumnus, and former director of Student Life. He will present an introduction on active listening and how it can improve communication and conflict resolution skills.
This event is part of a year-long series of conversations about conflict transformation to help the Divinity School community understand the skills necessary to deal effectively with interpersonal, congregational, and other forms of group conflict. In addition to giving a short presentation and engaging participants’ questions, speakers will provide practical resources and lists of materials to help equip participants in the journey to be more self-aware and more confident as they work in and on conflict.
The Divinity School's Hispanic House of Studies, Methodist House of Studies, and Thriving Rural Communities initiative are co-sponsoring the series.
