“Reconciliation is to understand both sides; to go to one side and describe the suffering being endured by the other side, and then go to the other side and describe the suffering being endured by the first side.” – Nhat Hanh

At its most basic, reconciliation is taking two things that were together, but are now apart, and bringing them back together. We are called to be agents of reconciliation. To be God’s ambassadors of reconciliation. To be the hands and the feet of the message. To proclaim that message, and it is through Christ all of us that have been called to proclaim the message be reconciled to God, are reconciled to one another. People that were apart, though we’re all one people, we’re apart now, we’re part through our cultures, through our ethnicities, through our economic statuses, but now through the Christ, through Christ, through the cross, we can be re-created back into one people. We can be reconciled to one people.
