Bethune-Cookman University Office of Chaplaincy Travels to Ireland

Most recently, Reverend John Baldwin, Reverend Kenya Lovell, and Mr. Wallace Wyatt III set out on a journey to Northern Ireland to take part in the, “Rethinking Conflict Conference,” sponsored by the United Methodist Church General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.  B-CU was one of three schools that took part in the conference.  

The group attended the conference to learn more about the political and religious struggle and violence over many decades between republicans and loyalists of the Protestant and Catholic church. “This travel seminar will embed you in an environment of conflict and conflict resolution, a setting that is actively involved in healing and creating new relationships between people, neighborhoods, and communities,” said Reverend Baldwin. The goal of the conference was for attendees to leave Northern Ireland with a strong sense of the difficulties that communities and individuals face in building peace in the midst of conflict as well as practical tools that will enhance the work to bring about positive change in conflicted situations.
