Peacemaking in Hong Kong

I had the privilege a couple weeks ago to teach peacemaking to a group of believers in Hong Kong, through Peacemaker Ministries. Like all Christians, they struggle with conflict, including conflict with one another. There were people from both Western and Eastern cultures in our training, and some aspects of conflict resolution seem to be culture-specific–eg, in Eastern cultures, one cannot confront a superior, or an elder, directly. But the universal aspect of Christian conflict resolution is Scripture: it speaks to the hearts of believers everywhere, including to these dear people. God was at work during the training–we trainers had opportunities to conflict-coach several participants who wanted help putting into practice the principles¬†they were learning about how to resolve conflicts biblically. It was humbling to see people working so hard to do what God calls us to do: Make every effort ¬†to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
