Building Relationships With People We Don’t Trust

By Fred Oduyoye and Rick Lawrence

As we emerge from our underground bunkers into the dawn of post-pandemic life, we’re facing a host of new challenges. For so many of us, the ability to gather in-person again is both welcome and fraught. We’re grateful to re-establish face-to-face relationships, but we’re very aware that this year, like no other, has surfaced deep divisions and (sometimes) shocking revelations about people we thought we knew well. 

So, how do we enter into these relationships authentically, intentionally, and redemptively? Reachable Reconciliation Founder Fred Oduyoye coaches individuals, cohorts, and congregations to develop the relational skills necessary to enter into difficult relationships. Watch Fred tell the story of a recent encounter with a man he knew was determined to be his enemy, and how a potentially tense situation morphed into an ice-breaking moment…  

Learn the skills of reconciling relationships when you journey with Fred as your coach in a Reachable Reconciliation Cohort
