Using the Political Frame to Understand Conflict

Politics is inherent in human enterprise, including congregations. In his essay, "The Political Frame," church consultant and researcher David Roozen of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research articulates a political frame for analyzing church conflict. The frame is made up of four elements: self and group interest, group differences (niches), variable access to power and conflicting purposes, objectives and goals. A case study illustrates how to use the political frame to help uncover and understand conflict in a congregation. Read David Roozen's essay, "The Political Frame."
