Too often, our efforts to promote reconciliation in our local community starts with conversations about the types of programs we should begin. Pastor Jin Kim reminds us that the ministry of reconciliation begins with simply viewing others as being made in the image of God. Additionally, the ministry of reconciliation requires each of us to reflect on the role we play in our broken relationships with neighbors. Pastor Kim shares his personal reflection in the form of a confession.
