The problem on ground needs God's intervention. If the mother has truly repented of her evil acts let her see the children one on one and sought out things. If they refuse at the innitial stage they ( the other two children) will someday come to terms with her. On the other hand she should hold on to God through prayers. For; there is nothing God cannot do.
Its no big problem, you have done your bit. To free your consience, let the community who expect much from you know how far you have gone to settle them. Also let them know whom among them is not willing to embrace peace, so that they will know who is to blame.
On the othe hand, let us know what is the problem between the two, because for your friend to refuse all peace approach, then it boils down on the gravity of the quarrel. If you dont mind let us know what is between them.
Very strange indeed. Let me just try and summarise. This is a family of 4 boys-my friend is the 3rd. At the time the 1st was graduating from d uni, the mother started pointing to him a girl he should marry instead of the one he was dating. The boy refused,and his brothers supported him. Before u know it, the family has divided into 2: dad&mum vs sons. Things degenerated to the extent that the boys were put in detention on the allegation of threat, the father being a very senior civil servant put in place a difficult bail term.Myself and others-automatically became enemies to the mother as we-tried against all odds to feed & care for my friend and his senior brothers. It took the intervention of a visiting state attorney at the time who became very annoyed and ordered their immediate release. Imagine the Judge asking my friend if he was sure the woman was really her biological mother. The mum was later accused of deceiving the dad-both physically&spiritually-leading to thier seperation for abt 8yrs now. And now the 1st boy is trying to bring the mum back home,but my friend and his other brother are strongly against the move. On 3 occasion b4 now,the mum have cried out to me to help her bring back the heart of my-best,close and trusted-friend. I have tried and now,only resort to prayers.
