"When perfect love has driven out fear, or fear has been transformed into love, then everything that has been saved will be a unity growing together through the one and only Fullness, and everyone will be, in one another, a unity in the perfect Dove, the Holy Spirit."

an act of reconciling or the state of being reconciled.
the process of making consistent or compatible.
Loving and Holy Creator,
I thank you for your reconciliation of us to you,
This by your initiation.
With being made right to you I should be able to make peace with my neighbor,
I should learn to live with my neighbor,
I should be able to listen to my neighbor.
But I don’t,
I still hate,
I still take what isn’t mine.
I treat my neighbors worse than I treat myself with rules and walls
Help me tear down these walls and break the rules so I can return to being compatible with my neighbor.
For we all live together and have the same goals.
Living and loving.
I thank you for the gift of reconciliation which transforms.
