The Reverend Dr. David Billings is a United Methodist Minister and author of the 2016 book Deep Denial: The Persistence of White Supremacy in United States History and Life.

Mediation Training Seminar Available

Dear Colleagues North Alabama Presbytery and the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley are delighted to sponsor a week-long mediation training seminar facilitated by Lombard Mennonite Peace Center.  This training institute offers invaluable skills and knowledge to navigate conflict in congregations and Presbyteries, and is useful in a variety of other contexts as well.
Through a generous grant from our Synod, we are able to offer this workshop for $575 per person for the first 22 participants from the Synod.  This price includes the conference, all materials, and lodging and meals at Camp Maranatha where the training will be held.  This is a *significant* discount of over 50% – the usual registration fee for the conference alone is $750, and with lodging would be $1200. 
There is an informational brochure attached.  Please share this with your ministers, congregations, and committees, highlighting the special scholarship rate.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me…
