Unbiased Peacemakers

Years ago, a pastor and his elders were locked in conflict. Early on, the pastor shared a vision with the elders that they needed to become more evangelistic and community minded.

The leaders, knowing their church was dying, embraced his vision and hired this pastor to move them forward. Sometime later, however, these longstanding leaders began grumbling about the changes being made.

Ultimately, the pastor was fired and these leaders refused to pay any severance. That’s when I was called in to mediate. As an unbiased mediator, I was able to bring a more rational compromise to the situation.

Matthew 5:9 teaches, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

Sometimes the only way a workplace conflict can be resolved is by calling in a peacemaker.
