The African Christian Pulse July-August 2009

Continuing its efforts for sustainable peace and justice in Africa, the AACC
has been present in the four corners of the continent, comforting, speaking
out, challenging and keeping alive the light of hope.
In this issue, the African Christian Pulse introduces two areas where AACC
continued to advocate for peace. The outbreak of war in the eastern provinces of
DRC urged AACC to send an ecumenical delegation of church leaders from
Burundi, Rwanda, DRC and AACC; they met both President Kabila of DRC
and Kagame of Rwanda, and encouraged them to prioritize dialogue and
peaceful discussion on issues of mutual concern to both countries.
Two major summits of African religious leaders gathered in Accra and Addis to
commit themselves to work for lasting peace and challenge the leaders of the
countries, the population and the force of order to stand for peace as new
religious riots broke out in the north of Nigeria.With hope in all these processes,
theAACCechoes the words of Micah,
β€œHe will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong
nations far and wide. They will beat their swords into ploughshares and
their spears into prunning hooks.” (Micah 4:3).
