MC/ SE/ TH 651 The Project of Reconciliation: Intersectionality, the Church & Culture

Reconciliation is a term and a process that is often misunderstood and minimized to deal solely with race. Yet, there are many more intersectional areas that demand individual, institutional, congregational reconciliation. Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil suggests, “Reconciliation is an ongoing spiritual process involving forgiveness, repentance and justice that restores broken relationships and systems to reflect God’s original intention for all creation to flourish” (Roadmap to Reconciliation, 22). Beyond learning about the historical, theological, cultural and sociological necessity for reconciliation, this course challenges students to emerge as leaders in the Project of Reconciliation.
