Exodus 18:22-23 and Deuteronomy 1:9-18 show that Moses was wise enough to realize that he could not resolve all of the relational tensions and conflicts that arose among the people God placed under his care. The same is true of shepherds today: they too need to “select wise, understanding and experienced” men and women to assist them in shepherding the flock.

One way to do this is to establish a “Peace Sower Team” that includes volunteer RW Instructors, Coaches and Conciliators who are equipped to teach and assist church members to apply relational wisdom and biblical peacemaking in their personal, church and work lives. For more information, see Peace Sower Teams.
