Truth and Reconciliation

bent_box

From Michael Gorman’s Becoming the Gospel (speaking here of the notion of reconciliation in the book of Ephesians): “[Theologians] have rightly looked to Ephesians 2 in order to proclaim the truth that “the reconciliation of previously hostile groups into the body of Christ . . . transform[s] but do[es] not require the erasure of national, ethnic, or cultural identity.” This does not mean, however, that there is no human effort or cost involved in reconciliation. Reconciliation may require repentance, forgiveness, restitution, and transformation on the part of one or more of the parties involved.”
