Understanding Reconciliation: Communities as Peacemakers 1
“We can only be free together...we can only survive together…we can be human only together…” Desmond Tutu
Communities committed to shared values and practices can be a powerful force for bringing about change in situations of conflict. How are peace and reconciliation expressed in and by specific communities? How do communities balance having a specific identity and being inclusive; between the good of the community and the interests of individuals that make it?
St Ethelburga's have invited guests from a number of well-established Christian communities devoted to peace-making in different parts of the world to help us learn how such communities operate
This week Br Jihad Youssef, Deir mar Musa Monastery, Syria Cornerstone Community, Northern Ireland will be talking at the event.
