8 OUR UNDERSTANDING OF PEACEBUILDING A COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGY that encompasses, generates, and sustains the full array of processes, approaches, and stages needed to transform conflict toward more sustainable, peaceful relationships. WIDE RANGE OF ACTIVITIES AND FUNCTIONS that include conflict transformation in the family, in the church, in the community, in the society as a whole; it also includes military intervention and conversion, governance and policymaking, restorative and transitional justice, environmental protection, human rights, civilian and military peacekeeping, peace education, activism and advocacy, trauma healing, and social-economic development. RECONCILIATION is the central component of peacebuilding. We will patiently walk with the conflicting parties who are willing to go on a journey from resolution of issues to rebuilding of relationships. THE QUESTION IS… IS THERE A NEED FOR PEACEBUILDING WHERE YOU ARE?

9 RECONCILIATION THE CENTRAL COMPONENT OF PEACEBUILDING Reconciliation is focused on building relationship between antagonists. Reconciliation is a place, a locus, a space created for encounter by the parties. Reconciliation is a great theological concept and a very practical course of action.
