What is Reconciliation?
Updated: Nov 14, 2018
To reconcile is to seek the healing of what's been broken. We all experience brokenness in our families, churches, and communities in different ways: through disagreement, disconnection, violence, and conflict.
But where there is conflict there is also opportunity to re-imagine a new way of life.
As Christians, we believe that we have been given the gift of reconciliation to God through Christ and that the ministry of reconciliation - to ourselves, God, creation, and others - is central to living out the gospel.
When we can learn to move towards conflict, extend hospitality to those who have different beliefs or opinions, speak into societal divisions, and hold space for meaningful communication, true healing can take place. God is calling all of us to be reconcilers together.
