As an example of conflict and resolution in a past situation, I think of the LEAP program (Letting education advance people). This program combined the resources of 8 local churches to help high school students pass an exam, that was giving minorities a hard time. We pooled our resources including buildings and transportation as well as our members to help with meals and crowd control. As time went on we began to have a conflict with the members over who was allowed to do certain things within the building. The members that belonged to the church whose building was being used became very controlling and it offended others members from other churches. The pastors of the 8 churches came together to have a conversation with all of the volunteers, in that meeting we brought up all that we had in common, including our belief in God, our love for the children, and our commitment to change. Afterward, the trouble between the members began to lessen and we learned the lesson, that groups need to be reminded of their combined goals, and they need to be taught to accept different ways of arriving at the same goal.
