A CHRISTMAS MANDELA
Peace is born of Love
Love is born of understanding
Understanding is born of Listening
Listening leads to Justice and Peace
Churches Together in Britain and Ireland
The world is a very troubled place this Advent. Conflicts around the globe dominate the news and our hearts bleed for the people of Syria caught up in a civil war which seems to get more bloody and complicated by the day, and the peoples of the Congo where inter-tribal and inter-faith fighting are beginning to raise once more the fear of genocide.
Then with the visit of a British Prime Minister to China we are reminded of the fear of the Tibetan people that their faith, culture and way of life are at risk of steadily being marginalised as China flexes its muscles as a great world power.
In Britain conflict takes a different form this coming winter. It takes the form of a fight against hunger as more and more food banks are established, sometimes in the most surprising places, and the fight against the diseases which inadequate heating can bring. As the price of fuel rockets there is a real fear that many people just will not be able to afford to keep themselves warm. This Christmas may not be a happy Christmas for everyone.
Of course discussing such issues can only take us so far, but nevertheless we look forward to our
CA Annual Conference: Squaring the Circle -
Is Conflict Resolution Possible in the 21st Century?
