As we continue in the series, discovering how to recover the freedom of becoming fully human in Christ, we recognize that in order to "be at peace with one another" as Paul stated, we needs to make amends "if at all possible" with all our neighbors; to pursue the flourishing of all humankind.

Step Five is about gaining the confidence in the reality of God’s abundant love and grace, so that we can courageously confess and admit the exact nature of our wrongs. As a result, we will experience the freedom that lies within the Kingdom of God that leads to healing, wholeness and flourishing. Step Five: “We admitted to God, ourselves and another human the exact nature of our wrongs.”
