FREE CONFLICT RESOLUTION AND RECONCILIATION COURSE AVAILABLE ONLINE
Are you in a conflict with a brother, sister, parent, spouse, or friend? Do you want to end that conflict and gain back loved ones and friends? Do you want to mend fences and rebuild bridges? Do you want to get rid of all the bitterness, anger, and resentment that you have toward others or that someone might have toward you? Do you want to do what GOD wants you to do in your broken relationships, but you don't know where or how to start?
Ambassadors of Reconciliation has some great tools that will help to teach you and guide you through a process of doing just that at https://www.aorhope.org/ .
You can receive access to a free online course called "Conflict Resolution vs. Reconciliation" at https://www.aorhope.org/aor-gift because I sponsored your scholarship. Simply go to that link to access this on-line course about biblical reconciliation. It is excellent.
I took a challenge to sponsor scholarships for several people at St. John's, because I want as many people as possible to take this course and learn to go and be reconciled to one another! If you think it is helpful you can take the challenge yourself and nominate others!
Let me know if you take the course, so I can know how many people my donation has helped!
