How to Fight Fairly in the African American Church

Church conflict is on the rise, and the resulting stress is a major cause of clergy abandoning ministry. Conflict in African American congregations is exacerbated by the daily struggles and external pressures felt within the African American community.  Minister Dianne Mason, consultant and president of One Accord Reconciliation Services, LLC, has written a paper,"Avoiding Splits—Fighting Fair in Church: Guidelines for an Effective Church Peacemaking-Mediation Process," to help African American church leaders learn how to encourage fair congregational fighting through effective mediation and peacemaking processes.
