Peacemaking in Action

Catalysts for peacemaking, especially where minorities are persecuted, where justice is denied, human rights are suppressed or reconciliation is needed.

Reflections on Olive Tree Planting

Anne Martin recently participated in the annual olive tree planting programme of Keep Hope Alive in Beit Sahour, Palestine. Anne writes,  "The olive tree is the symbol of peace, and of prosperity.  It is plain and frugal, surviving in poor soil, lasting for thousands of years and yielding precious fruit and oil.  The intention is to support Palestinian farmers by protecting their land from being taken over by settlers."

Prayers for Rwanda

Later this week, God willing, I will be returning to Cyangugu in Western Rwanda on the border with the Congo to teach a module at the Anglican Theological School.The journey via Doha and Kigali takes two days. Many of the students have little or no formal education, but they are eager to learn. Like the Apostle Paul, they fund their ministry from working as craftsmen, farmers or shepherds and therefore must study part-time. Your prayers appreciated for a fruitful week of training.
