Signs of Conflict Brewing

Rural church pastor, Johnny Moore, shares the following signs indicating potential conflict:

*  Dark Clouds -- negative comments are surfacing more than positive comments.  The "tattle-tale" syndrome is on the rise.

*  Heavy Winds -- personal agendas are being emphasized more than the mission of the organization.  Attendance begins to drop.  Momentum is feeling the resistance.

*  Sudden Temperature Change -- Key leaders appear withdrawn and distant.  Signs of discouragement, confusion and negative influence begin to appear.

For some great suggestions on how to handle church conflict when it arises, read the rest of the post, Navigating Through Conflict, here.
