Over the season of Lent this blog and the MSA blog focused on the broad theme of reconciliation. Lent is now well and truly over but our need for reconciliation is an ongoing work. You can expect to read much more on this theme throughout the rest of the year.
As I have mentioned several times over the season, the good news of the gospel is God’s desire to reconcile all things to God self. This is an holistic plan, that embraces not just our inner transformation and reconciliation to God but restoration of creation, the making of peace where there is enmity, healing where there is brokenness and renewal wherever the image of God is distorted. Our creator has begun a process of redemption to restore all things to what they were meant to be.
I know that like me, many of us have not had time to read over the reflections that have been posted so I wanted give you an opportunity to do that.
Practicing Reconciliation will also be the theme for our 2015 annual retreat on Camano Island. We hope that you can join us.
Also, we are in the process of putting together a reading list on reconciliation. If there are books that you think are “must reads” on this topic, please leave a comment at the end of the post.
