God is showing us that the message of Reconciliation is a powerful message, vital and indispensable for our country, our communities, our families, our couples and also for our churches. When people are open to work on reconciliation, it’s like making an invitation and a special place for the work of the Holy Spirit … and it’s really edifying to see Him at work. In Canada we try to resolve tensions by “buying peace” with negotiations and so-called “reasonable” accommodations: this is called maintaining business relationships. But that does not solve anything because the problem is deeply rooted in the broken relationships and unresolved wounds that the different groups of people carry in their relationships… Unfortunately, the relationships are not meant to “take care of each other” but to dealing and settling things with a business mindset, using people instead of serving people … Canada is a big, blended family of several groups of children – French, English, Aboriginal and all new adopted immigrant children – and that’s a family that suffers deeply because it has never resolved its broken relationships since its origin …
On the other hand, the gospel does not ask us to have business relationships between us, but rather to take care of each 20190118_115511other. Our Survey of over 400 years of history shows that in any organization, any group, when relationships are unresolved and the focus is put on accommodations, business, dealing, programs and structures, we fall into the trap creating and feeding  “power struggles” and it produces additional tensions that agitate and complicate relationships even more … (a favorable and ideal play ground for Satan to start a spiritual war and destroy). In such case, we also find that it saddens and limits the work of the Holy Spirit.

That being said, when we see cracks appearing in the walls of our house, family or local Church, it is not the time to make rénovations because it will only cover up the look. To the contrary, it is a clear sign (red flag) that we must dig deep in the foundations of the house to find the root so to understand what is causing the real problems and to discern appropriate measures and steps to correct the situation (Jeremiah 1: 10 biblical process). Therefore, when we do not practice the instruction of the Word of God, we pay the price and the conséquences are inevitably tragic … This is what 1 Corinthians 12 evokes for our reports because according to the text all the members are important: 1Co 12: 24-25 “God arranged the body to give more honor to what was lacking, so that there was no division in the body, but the members also took care of each other. ”
