The Right Tools for Reconciling

By Fred Oduyoye and Rick Lawrence

Ever tried to turn a screw with your fingernail? Or pound in a nail with the back of a hairbrush? Or cut a piece of wood with a serrated kitchen knife? Guilty. Guilty. Guilty. The fingernail and the hairbrush and the kitchen knife always lose those contests. Without the right tools, the job is hopeless and frustrating. But (as we’ve already admitted) we’ll use whatever we can if our toolbox is empty. That’s why in life, as in our home projects, we need a well-stocked toolbox. And when our focus is on reconciling divided and diverse relationships, we need the right tools for the job—relational tools. 

Join Reachable Reconciliation Founder Fred Oduyoye and Vibrant Faith Executive Director Rick Lawrence for a conversation about tools—what can help you repair and restore the broken and strained relationships in your church, and how you can collect what you need to get the job done…

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 hard work of reconciliation.

The Cohort includes:

– 5 live online training sessions (90 minute) each month with your facilitator Fred Oduyoye
– Additional materials, assignments, and resources sent to your cohort between sessions
– A private online community to share in discussion, ideas, and connection
