Reconciliation Rite for Impasse


This prayer service is constructed to be used only once in a process that is conflicted, at a point in deliberations that reconciliation and consensus do not look probable. It uses some pertinent Scripture readings, intercession and role play. The facilitator or facilitating team needs to play an important part in this prayer service. They will need to follow up on it in their next session around the conference table. But having a night (or longer) to sleep on it will be an important time for rest after this ritual. It is hoped that by confronting the personalities of peace, truth, mercy, and justice in an environment of prayer, a perspective of reconciliation emerges unique to that circumstance.
