Christian Women as Peace Makers

Workshop Title

The workshop will seek to identify the causes of conflicts in the families, churches, workplaces, communities and even in nations. It will look at the way the society handles these conflicts and then how Christians should handle them to bring lasting solutions and biblical peace. Participants would bring contributions from the experiences they have had if they have lived in conflict areas of the world. Caroline is coming from a background of current war and conflict in her Nation but her session will address solutions to conflict in general as well.

Women should come out of this session having learned about peace building principles from the Bible and from secular society and state, and how they will eventually apply them back in their Unions, conventions, societies and families.
