Conflict Within Our Closest Communities
A resolution to change can be bolstered with outside disciplines—12-step programs, religion, or therapy, to name a few.
As you set off to meditate or go to church or a self-help gathering, as you weave your way through traffic or walk down a bustling street, view your actions as a pilgrimage. You are on a quest to improve yourself and break free from the bondage of conflict.
But what if the place you choose for help actually suffers from its own conflict? Even the best churches and other religious centers can fall into the same negative dynamics that you experience in other walks of life. One church in Boston, for instance, “stirred dissent” by voting to sell a nearly invaluable copy of “The Bay Psalm,” “a rare psalmbook…that could fetch up to $20 million at auction.”http://www.breakyouraddictiontoconflict.com/wp/conflict-within-our-closest-communities/
