BECOMING AMBASSADORS OF RECONCILIATION: PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, BIBLICAL ROOTS AND GLOBAL IMPLICATIONS
18 July 2017
Club Condell Park (formerly Bankstown Trotting and Recreation Club), 178 Eldridge Rd, Bankstown NSW

This seminar will be presented by Dominican Sister Laurie Brink op, Associate Professor of New Testament Studies at the Catholic Theological College, Chicago.

Before we can be ambassadors of reconciliation, we must first be reconciled with God, our community members, and ourselves. How do we move from victim and wrong-doer to survivor and penitent, and finally to a new creation? This program engages a dynamic process that integrates personal reflection with elements of modern Christian reconciliation and biblical study. We will explore a process that can enable us to truly respond to God’s call to be “ministers of reconciliation” (2 Cor 5:18) first in our own lives and communities, and then for our church and our world.

Session 1: Which am I? Victim or Wrong-Doer: Understanding Christian Reconciliation
Session 2: A Way Forward by Going Back: God’s Reconciling Presence in Scripture
Session 3: “Return to Me with your Whole Heart” (Joel 2:12): Becoming Reconciling Missionary Disciples

Registration, tea and coffee from 9:30 AM. Cost is at $125. For enquiries contact CLRI(NSW) at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or ring +612 9799 8062
