“For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in [the Son], and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” (Colossians 1:19-20)

Our world yearns for God’s reconciliation. As God is restoring the world through Christ, so also Christians must join the work of reconciliation. We are called to bring justice and transformation of racial inequity, poverty, environmental issues, human rights, global conflicts, and other issues today. In order to accomplish this work, we need to understand how we can apply the theology of reconciliation to real-world situations. The Center for Reconciliation (CFR) at Duke Divinity School was founded to form and support leaders, communities, and congregations as Christ-like ambassadors of reconciliation.
