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.
