And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
-2 Corinthians 5.19b
On Sunday, June 16, 2013, Pastor Chelsey shared “A Place to Become” based on 2 Corinthians 5.16-21. You can hear that message on our current series‘ sermon page on our website (or in the archives).
The main theme of this section of Paul’s letter to the Church in Corinth is reconciliation. Today’s links example three different kinds of reconciliation to encourage and equip you:
Reconciliation between God and yourself through confession in “The Sacred Act of Pulling Weeds” by Adam McLane.
Reconciliation between yourself and a neighbour (which means opening up your neighbour to the possibility of reconciliation with God) in “I CHOOSE GRACE!” by John.
And working for the reconciliation of others in “Subversive for the Common Good: Seek the Welfare of the City” by Bob Robinson.
This post is a follow up to a sermon preached at Christ Community Church in Nanaimo, BC by Rev. Chelsey Harmon on June 16, 2013. It provides stories that relate to the theme and call to reconciliation.
