Holy Communion provides the place, the time, the ritual, and the spiritual power for transforming our conflicts, healing relationships, and doing the work of reconciliation in the world. Our churches are conflicted – whether at national or international levels or the more intimate personal levels. How might we open ourselves to see the ways the sacraments of Holy Communion transform conflict? In Conflict and Communion, church people as different as William Everett, Gayle Carlton Felton, Larry Goodpaster, Stephanie Anna Hixon, David Hooker, Marcia McFee, Tom Porter, Peter Storey, and Marjorie Thompson offer wisdom and experience in examining the sacrament of Holy Communion and the transformation of our conflicts.
