Reconciliation, divine and human

Theologically, reconciliation with God is never apart from reconciliation with people, although obviously God takes the lead in ways that humans never could. As the Archbishop of Canterbury has elegantly put it in a recent talk here in Cambridge, 'Christian faith does not make the world smaller, it makes the world larger, puts us more in touch with the truth of reality, not less.' And a part of that, I am convinced, is seeing the magnitude of our own sin, personally and systemically, as well as sin done in my name and on my behalf.
