In this illuminating pamphlet, the authors discuss their experience and learnings in using Jesus' instructions for resolving conflicts in community, found in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 18. They find it is an inward process, made possible by grace, that can lead to reconciliation and forgiveness. Even if no reconciliation occurs, inward freedom and forgiveness can result as we lay down the burden of fear, resentment, bitterness, guilt, and victimhood. Our testimony of peace begins right in our own families and meetings, by paying attention to the guidance of the Inward Teacher.
