Seeking Peace in Africa
The WCC appealed to the Historic Peace Churches to share their responses to the enormous reach of terror and violation of human life in this generation. The stories in this volume are the hopeful responses of Africans who have lived through horrific violence. Some are unbearable tales of despair at the loss of millions of lives due to warfare, riots, terror, starvation, AIDS and disease. Other s are remarkable descriptions of courageous peacemaking in the midst of nearly impossible circumstances. includes contributions by Friends Malesi Elizabeth Kinaro, David Niyonzima, and Cecile Nyiramana who spoke at the 2007 FGC gathering.
