Reconciliation & non-violent

"If we have a view to future reconciliation with our enemy, we will resist violence and unjust means in our struggle, because we hope to live with our neighbor afterwards. In other words, if the goal is reconciliation, the means will also be reconciliatory, and this has implications for processes and attitudes in mission. The Holy Spirit delimits the strategies of mission since not all methods are compatible with the Spirit of Christ." (Kirsteen Kim, The Holy Spirit in the World: A Global Conversation [USA: Orbis, 2007], p.178. Emphasis added.)
