CANCELLED – Prophets and Reconcilers
Sat 25th April 2020
In the face of structural and cultural violence, militarism, division, and the climate emergency, how can we become the prophets and reconcilers the world needs to inspire radical transformation in our communities, in our world, and in ourselves? The Network of Christian Peace Organisations invites you to join us for a day of spiritual reflection and renewal on the theme of Christian peacemaking. With speakers from a broad range of backgrounds and faith traditions, we will explore nonviolence, bridge-building, grassroots activism, and ways we are called to be spiritual peacemakers – a force for change in the world today.
This event has now been cancelled.
The Fellowship of Reconciliation is a community of people who are inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ (Jesus of Nazareth) to oppose war and work together to build a world order based on love.
Our Mission: to grow and resource the community of Christians committed to nonviolence; challenge militarism; embody peace and reconciliation.
Our Methods: to grow and support our membership of nonviolent peacemakers; campaign and advocate at a national and local level; work with partners to campaign at an international level; offer training, prayer, worship, and living example.
FoR promotes active nonviolence and love as the means to transform unjust political, economic and social structures.
We are an ecumenical Christian organisation campaigning against war and its preparation. In our 105 years, we’ve racked up 6 Nobel Peace Prize winners, and are partners in the 2017 Laureate: the International Campaign to Ban Nuclear Weapons!
