You find them working tirelessly in the most challenging divides in the world: Christian/Muslim violence in Nigeria; overcrowded and unjust prisons worldwide; broken inner cities in the U.S.; and environmental destruction caused by industrialization in Buffalo, N.Y.
While the individual details may have been different, people from across the world who gathered at the Duke Center for Reconciliation’s Summer Institute shared the same story while seeking inspiration and a deeper understanding of reconciliation.

The Duke Center for Reconciliation's fifth annual Reconcilers Weekend Conference will feature Fr. Virgilio Elizondo, professor of pastoral and Hispanic theology at Notre Dame, and Kit Danley, founder of Neighborhood Ministries in Phoenix, Ariz.
The reconciliation conference, "The Future Is Mestizo: Communities of New Creation at the Borders of Separation," is designed specifically for congregational leaders, seminarians and anyone who loves the church. It brings a leading practitioner and a leading theologian, each dedicated to a life of Christian reconciliation, to share their stories and wisdom at Duke Divinity School.
Participants will have the opportunity to discover what it means to follow a Savior who was considered a child of an unknown father and who broke down ethnic and cultural boundaries. They will explore how this mixed-heritage mestizo Jesus is calling people into a new human family based on love of God and love of neighbor.
