Fifty years ago the world seemed like a pretty crazy place; like families and cities and our country were coming apart. Sometimes it feels like that again. It makes me wonder if reconciliation is still our life’s work. Maybe it is still the church’s calling. Reaching across the walls that divide us. Seeking relationships with those who are different. Bridging the chasms that may even seem insurmountable.
The Confession of ‘67 urges us to hold onto hope that it’s possible - not because we know more, or are better people, or live in a more advanced time - but because hope is the heart of the Gospel.
