Peacemaking from one side of Australia to the other
2019 has started off with a bang for PeaceWise!
Over the last two weeks of January, ten of our PeaceWise trainers taught our first course Everyday Peacemaking in three different schools in three different states – NSW (ACC Marsden Park), SA (Horizon Christian School) and WA (Emmanuel Christian Community School) – plus The Navigators in the ACT!!
The focus of the training is to help participants learn that there are opportunities presented to us in conflict of which we are often not aware, give them a simple framework for understanding conflict and practical tools to respond well to conflict.
All training days were a great success with close to 200 people learning peacemaking principles and new ways of handling conflict so that they can work towards creating cultures of peace within their school and ministry communities.
Here is just a little bit of what some of the participants had to say…
“The training yesterday was really fantastic. Very engaging and very impacting. I think it will prove to be a strategically important day for our school.”
“I loved how it all came back to ‘how can we glorify God”
“Thank you so much for this program. There is such a need in the Christian (and non Christian) community for this program”
We want to extend a big thank you to all our trainers. They are all such wonderful blessings to us and to those they teach.
We also wanted to thank everyone who has been praying and supporting the work of PeaceWise all over Australia! Everyone’s contribution makes a real difference to making these trainings a reality.
We are so passionate about bringing the gospel of peace and want to do this to more churches, schools and organisations! So if you would like PeaceWise to come to your school, church or organisation please contact Catherine our office manager at [email protected] or phone 02 9890 6516. We would love to share the gospel of peacemaking with you!
