We are willful human beings. Our wills bump up against each other. This can lead to conflict, alienation, enmity. Sometimes our offences against each other are small and we can just move on. Other times they are large and need to be attended to. Otherwise, relationships can break down—there is no longer a sense of kinship with each other. What is needed is reconciliation.
Reconciliation literally means to re-council each other. People who have been torn apart for some reason need to be brought into council again, they need to be reunited with each other. They need reconciliation.
