Reconciliation is God’s initiative, seeking “to reconcile to himself all things” through Christ (Col 1:19). Reconciliation is grounded in God restoring the world to God’s intentions, the process of restoring the brokenness between people and God, within people, between people, and with God’s created earth. Reconciliation between people is a mutual journey, requiring reciprocal participation. It includes a willingness to acknowledge wrongs done, extend forgiveness, and make restorative changes that help build trust so that truth and mercy, justice and peace dwell together. The Christian faith embraces reconciliation as the mission of God in our fallen and broken world, accomplished in the work of Jesus Christ, and entrusted to the church through people who participate by being transformed into ambassadors of reconciliation in a broken world. In this workshop, we will look at four The Biblical & Theological Foundations of Reconciliation, The Scope of Reconciliation, The Process of Reconciliation, and the indicators of Reconciliation.
