‘On the Ground in Eastern Africa: Creating Peace Amid Conflict & Religious Extremism’ 

Forgiving Offenses Willingly (1st Nov, 2018)

Fr. Patrick Devine Ph.D, a missionary and social entrepreneur, gives this second talk in CWCIT’s new Spiritual Works of Mercy Series on peace and reconciliation in Eastern Africa. This region of the world is increasingly plagued by religious ideological extremism, which generates a hostile cultural environment that suffocates tolerance, freedom, mercy, and reconciliation. To create and implement conflict management and peacemaking policies, it’s critical to have a comprehensive knowledge of the continuum of conflict/peace, tolerance/intolerance, and more. Fr. Devine explores these topics, drawing on the work of the Shalom Centre for Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation, which he founded in Eastern Africa.
