Reconciliation Needed Here

Maybe it is a sign of the times, but everything strikes me as a political comment these days. Here is the latest, which came to my attention while studying for an upcoming test:

Around the Table of the Lord, God’s people are in communion with Christ and with all who belong to Christ. Reconciliation with Christ compels reconciliation with one another. All the baptized faithful are to be welcomed to the Table, and none shall be excluded because of race, sex, age, economic status, social class, handicapping condition, difference of culture or language, or any barrier created by human injustice. Coming to the Lord’s Table the faithful are actively to seek reconciliation in every instance of conflict or division between them and their neighbors. (Book of Order of the PC(USA) W-2.4006, emphasis added)
