“Stay with the contradiction. If you stay, you will see that there is always something more than two opposing truths. The whole truth always includes a third part, which is reconciliation.” Jacob Neddleman
Reconciliation is the paradox of peace. Peace is rarely simple. The hard work of reconciliation is where we are torn from our bigotry, opinions, pre-conceived idealistic bias and thrown mentally and emotionally into contradiction. From this contradiction we crack open a new light, a new path, a new idea for reconciliation. In this third part is new life and victory birthed.
“So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.” Jesus
