Don't Take the Bait to Escalate: A Conversation with Jay Payleitner

Is all conflict wrong? Should Christians seek to avoid conflict at all costs? In a world that is increasingly adversarial, how do we navigate differences with wisdom and winsomeness? Author and Speaker Jay Payleitner shares four factors that will help us navigate the conflicts that are inevitable in life without being a jerk. It’s a timely discussion that will show us the choices we have in conflict and how our choice can lead to either obstinance or greater understanding.
