Beyond the Divide: Christian Practices of Reconciliation for a Polarized World

Tuesday, March 9, 2021 | 11:00 - 12:30 p.m. ET

In a divided world, the longing for reconciliation runs deep. One in six individuals stopped speaking to a family member after the 2016 election. One report found that 93% of Americans wish they could do better but don’t know how. As those tasked with the ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5), the Church has an amazing opportunity to be a healing presence in our world today. Sadly, many of our church bodies are as divided as the wider culture, alienating youth, and depriving the world of the Gospel hope we’re called to share. We’re bad at conflict. We fear it. We avoid it. We mishandle it. And we’re not all likely to agree anytime soon. But what if we could lead through disagreements in ways that deepen discipleship instead of division? This workshop will introduce fresh, applicable Christian practices, capacity-building ministry tools, and stories of hope for faithfully embodying the Gospel of reconciliation even while we disagree.

Learning outcomes include:

  1. A fresh vision for cultural and ecclesial conflict as an opportunity for the Church to recover the ministry of reconciliation.
  2. A basic introduction to fresh, applicable Christian practices and practical ministry tools for harnessing the energy of conflict to deepen discipleship instead of division.
  3. Stories of how this work has transformed Christian communities across North America.
