I found this referenced in a short letter from a minister to the Archbishop of Canterbury regarding how to come to a resolution to an ongoing issue in the Church of England. I was able to find the full book online. It is an interesting take on how Paul addressed the many and varied issues for which he was asked about for counsel. This is … Continue reading Good Advice for Conflict Resolution
