Acceptance is one thing. Reconciliation is another.
There are churches that say they accept all. There are business that say the accept everyone.
But acceptance isn’t enough. Reconciliation is.
But there isn’t always reconciliation.
And when there isn’t reconciliation, there isn’t full acceptance.
Reconciliation is more painful; it’s more difficult.
Reconciliation forces one to remember the wrongs committed and relive constant pain.
Yet it’s more powerful and transformational because two parties that should not be together and have every right to hate one another come together for the good of one another, for forgiveness, reconciliation, unity.
