Reachable Reconciliation: Why We Need ‘Discordant Notes’

By Fred Oduyoye and Rick Lawrence

In a widely-watched TED Talk titled “There Are No Mistakes On the Bandstand,” jazz master Stefon Harris shows an audience of business leaders how his improvisational quartet listens their way to great music, often born out of what seem like mistakes. In the world of master musicians these “discordant notes,” says Harris, are not mistakes to be overcome or removed, but a starting point for creativity and beauty.

The same is true in our journey toward reconciling relationships, says Reachable Reconciliation Founder Fred Oduyoye. Learn why the “discordant notes” that inevitably surface in our attempts to create healthy “listening” environments can be the leverage we need to build reconciling bridges between one another.

Learn the skills of reconciling relationships when you journey with Fred as your coach in a Reachable Reconciliation Cohort! Fred Oduyoye will use his expertise to help you engage in the transformational work of relational reconciliation—a healthy relational environment is reachable!
