Faith in a Conflicted World is a 5-part mini-film series from Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury. He believes that reconciliation is the call on every human being. To reconcile means to become friendly with someone after estrangement, to settle a quarrel or difference. It also can mean making two apparently conflicting things compatible or consistent with each other. Justin Welby’s programme is called “Difference” and is about building bridges in a time when opinions and politics are becoming more and more polarised.
