“The Roadmap to Reconciliation: Leading Communities into Unity, Wholeness and Justice”

Featuring Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil

In her book, Roadmap to Reconciliation, Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil says, “It's time for the followers of Jesus to embark on the prophetic journey that leads to reconciliation and transformation around the world. Many of us may already be aware of the need for reconciliation in our own backyards. . . . We cannot ignore the plight of the people around us and as globalization continues its relentless march onward, we cannot turn a blind eye to the world at large either. We have to face the realities here at home and we must also embrace the stories of people all around the world."

As Christians, many of us can see the injustice and inequality in our lives and in the world. We are ready to rise up. But how, exactly, do we do this? How does one reconcile? What we need is a clear sense of direction. In this seminar, Rev. Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil will guide us through the common topics of discussion and past the bumpy social terrain and political boundaries that will arise as we seek to lead others into reconciliation. If you are ready to take the next step into unity, wholeness and justice, then this is the seminar for you!
