“[God] reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:18).
Tribalism. More and more, this description characterizes the trajectory of our society, as we are descending into an increasingly savage pack-mentality. Forget about civility: It’s the law of the jungle out there, and if you’re not with me, you’re against me. How ironic that, in a society that has worked so hard to resist drawing an absolute line between right and wrong, we are now so eager to label a right and a wrong side of history, and a right and a wrong kind of people.
When our newsfeeds are drowning in warfare rhetoric, how is God calling his people to engage? Will we batten down the hatches and sure up our defenses? Will we charge full-tilt into battle under the war cry, “take no prisoners?”
What does it look like for the church to be reconciled to God, to forgive one another as the Lord forgave, and to live out our message of reconciliation in a deeply-divided culture?
Helping us answer these critical questions will be Francis Chan, Ravi Zacharias, Becky Pippert, John Bechtel, Michael Ramsden, Lisa Fields, Abdu Murray, Judy Dabler, Vince Vitale, and other members of the RZIM team.
