The Anabaptist Association of Australia & New Zealand will conduct a conference, From Pieces to Peace, on Australia Day Weekend, 2013
From Pieces to Peace
More Than Just Neighbours In a Multifaith World
What can the Peace Church bring to the round table?
A conference about peace building between different faiths & cultures.
Jesus calls for followers who will be merciful neighbours, loving others as we love ourselves. In OZ and NZ today many of our neighbours are Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim or people with no defined faith. How are we at being neighbours to so many who are so different from ourselves? We’d also like the challenge of going beyond being merely neighbourly and like Jesus embody the love of neighbour as the ground for reconciliation… which is also the foundation for peace.
