Our Mission

We seek to engage with others to study, serve, advocate and witness to the needs for justice and reconciliation in the community as we live out our Christian faith and discipleship. 

 

“Reconciliation is an ongoing, spiritual process involving forgiveness, repentance and justice that restores broken relationships and broken systems to reflect God’s original intention for all creation to flourish.”

 - Rev. Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil, Roadmap to Reconciliation
