There is still strong resistance within Mission Mississippi to address issues of systemic social injustice as part of the message of Christian reconciliation; however, the book concludes that a theology of open friendship, present in elements of Mission Mississippi's theology of racial reconciliation, is robust enough to start changing Mississippi. Mission Mississippi demonstrated this potential in 2005 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina when it utilized its church networks to help coordinate aid distribution to the Gulf Coast.
