Which game are you playing?

Nick Kyrgios is the talented young Aussie tennis player who made the news recently, both for his tennis and his behaviour at Wimbledon – for which he was roundly criticised by the world’s media.

Isn't it true that whenever we are confronted with our own wrongdoing or failings we instinctively want to blame something or someone else?   Read more


Don’t miss out!

During August and September 2015 a flurry of our National training program events for 2015 take place around Australia - Adelaide, Darwin, Perth and Melbourne.

Time is running out but there’s still time to register for these events. And if want to register for the Advanced mediation training – don’t leave it too late as the training starts in Sydney on 7 September. 
There are four possible registration discounts that might be applicable to you. Individual early bird and group early bird (5 or more) discounts enjoy substantial discounts if the registration is completed at least 2 months before the date of the relevant training. The popular Senior Minister’s Special 2 for 1 is also back - Senior Ministers who register for either Personal peacemaking or Conflict coaching can bring along another member of their church for FREE! Along with these specials – there is the Repeat Delegate special – if you have undertaken any of our courses before, but would like to come again, you can for just 50% of the regular delegate fee!
To start, get skilled in using biblical principles to deal with conflict in your life by doing Personal Peacemaking training.  If you’ve done Personal Peacemaking already, now’s the time to get equipped to help others in conflict by taking Conflict Coaching.  And if you’ve done Conflict Coaching, the next step is learning how to use a Christian mediation process in Mediation training.  And for those wanting to learn how to deal with trickier situations in mediation, come and learn Advanced Mediation in Sydney this year.
Adelaide        10-14 August
Darwin           15, 17 -20 August
Perth              24 -28 August
Melbourne     31 August -4 September
Sydney          7-9 September (Advanced Mediation)

Hydrate regularly!

You wouldn’t live for long if you drank water from a fire hydrant and then waited a year before you had another drink – from another fire hydrant! Coming to our training courses can feel refreshing and life giving but it can also feel abit like drinking from a fire hydrant because there is so much to learn in a short time. Why don’t you drink from the PeaceWise well regularly and deeply by coming to a hub near you so you can practice skills, share ideas, pray and be encouraged to grow as a peacemaker.
Upcoming hub meetings are:
30 July      WA       Perth Northern Suburbs (Woodvale)Save as Template
10 Aug      NSW    Illawara (Woonona Presbyterian Church)
17 Aug      NSW    Penrith (Penrith Church of Christ)
19 Aug      WA       Perth Southern Suburbs (Rehoboth Christian College)
19 Aug      QLD     Brisbane (Royal Geographical Society of Qld)

From Bruce

Each month great things are happening for God. Just yesterday I had the chance to share and show God's love to two women through a mediation, while dozens within the PeaceWise community prayed for reconciliation, the issues to be worked through and for the mediation process to bring them closer to God. Much good progress was made and I'll keep meeting with them over the next month - so thanks so much for the work we do together!"

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13)

Warm wishes,

Bruce Burgess - National Director
