Rector’s Forum Oct. 14, 21, 28: “Conflict and Communion” – Conflict is a dirty word. In our homes, in our church, and in our society we often associate conflict with sin, brokenness, and failure. What does conflict have to do with communion? In this Rector’s Forum Dr. Kyle Lambelet, a faculty member at Emory’s Candler School of Theology, will explore how we understand conflict theologically: not merely as sin or evidence of our finitude, but as the foundation of communion. Beginning with a Trinitarian account of unity in difference, what theologians call perichoresis, we will explore the goodness of conflict theologically and scripturally as well as build skills for engaging conflict in healthy ways.
