Are you facing any of the following in your faith community?

  • We’d love to strengthen our relationships with one another, and with neighbors.
  • We’re need to address some topics that have been “swept under the rug” for too long.
  • Some of us are “poles apart” and it would be better if we could come together.

Each of these situations presents an opportunity for respectful dialogue, consensus building, and in some cases, conflict resolution.

Following the Steps on the Preferred Path can opens minds and hearts to solutions that are often out of reach by any other means.

You can follow the Steps of the Preferred Path unilaterally, without cooperation of others, by using the Steps as a guide for your own behavior.

Or, you and another person can use this site as a common point of reference in taking the Steps together.

Beginning with Step 1 Pray and Prepare, click on each Step and follow the guidance. While you can “loop forward” at any time, experience suggests it’s best to follow the Steps in order.

Click Convening if you’d like us to help you bring two or more parties together for a collaborative solution.
