What stands in the way
Is there any answer to hostility?
Thankfully, Jesus provides an answer to hostility! The answer is reconciliation (Matthew 5:24-26, Eph. 2:15b-16). We define reconciliation as:
A series of actions that removes hostility from a relationship, repairs the damage it has caused, and restores the unity-in-diversity that God desires.
