Reconciliation is a key biblical theme. It appears in the teaching, storytelling, and example of Jesus. And Paul unpacks it in several of his letters. Reconciliation is “right-making in relationship”—an attempt to restore the first thing that was damaged by the fall in Eden: the intimate, holy web of relationships among God and human beings. When reconciliation happens, the distance between us decreases.
This week we talk about some biblical tools that help us pursue reconciliation. Rooted in the ways God loves and reconciles us to himself, these tools will help us “keep a yes open” to one another.
