“We are born broken. We live mending. The grace of God is the glue.” -Eugene O’Neill.
You don’t have to look far to see the brokenness that Eugene O’Neill describes. Nations aim weapons at one another. Political pundits humiliate those that think differently. Racial injustices, both past and present, continue to divide our communities. But the brokenness is often closer to home than we realize. We all have prejudices and hostility that build walls between us and our neighbors. We all experience the kind of conflicts that hurt our relationships with friends and family. We all are in need of reconciliation with both God and our neighbor.
“We Live Mending: Practicing the Discipline of Reconciliation” will focus on faith-based reconciliation as lifestyle. Participants will learn and practice the process for reconciling themselves to others and becoming an instrument of reconciliation in the world. We will all come broken, seeking to mend, and trusting God to be glue that unites us to love and serve the world around us.
