TOGETHER AND THROUGH HIS

SCRIPTURE THAT MELTS ALL OUR

DIFFERENCES SO WE COME TO THE

CROSS.

WE HAVE GOD.

WE HAVE MESSIAH, JESUS.

WE HAVE SPIRITUAL OF GOD.

WE HAVE POWER OF GOSPEL THAT CAN

HELP US.

THE HELP FROM GOD THESE MEN

SEEK IS TO UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER

BETTER AND BRING A GREATER UNITY

IT IS NOT JUST A WORD.

IT IS REALITY.

YOU ARE MORE DEAR TO THOSE WHO

ARE CULTURALLY RELATED TO ME

BECAUSE YOU ARE IN FAITH RELATED

TO ME.

RECONCILIATION IS NOT SOMETHING

WE CAN JUST AXEL.

IT IS GOD WHO CAN BRING ABOUT

WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THEIR

HEARTS.

IF HE CAN DO IT WITH TWO MEN, HE

CAN DO IT WITH ANY NUMBER.

THEY THEY HOPE TO GET TOGETHER

AND MAYBE EVEN WORSHOP.

IF THE GOSPEL DOESN'T BRING

RECONCILIATION, THERE IS

SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE GOSPEL.
