Justice in Peace – Forgiveness

Poster 2018CHISWICK CHURCHES FOR JUSTICE & PEACE (CCJP) announces its fifth and final Peace in War event linked to the centenary of WW1 which starts at 7.30 pm on Tuesday 16th October 2018 at Christ Church, Turnham Green, W4 5DT.

CCJP are inviting people to an evening of discussion on the continuing theme of “Peace in War”. This year’s topic is “Justice in Peace – Forgiveness… Seeking reconciliation after conflict and genocide”.

In 2018, the centenary of the Armistice, as we witness genocide and enforced migration on our television screens, we are reminded of the need for justice, security and peace for all peoples.

The speakers will be Dr Harry Hagopian, KSL, London-based international lawyer, political advisor and ecumenical consultant on the Middle East, North Africa and Gulf regions and Father Laurence Freeman, OSB, Director of the World Community for Christian Meditation.

There will be poetry readings and a short harp recital. After refreshments, Fr Laurence will follow his talk by a short mediation. There will then be a panel discussion and an opportunity for questions from the floor. The evening will be chaired for the third successive year by Chiswick resident, Torin Douglas, formerly BBC media correspondent. Local MP, Ruth Cadbury is intending to join us and will speak just before the event’s close.

Admission is free and CCJP will be collecting for a relevant charity at the end of the evening.
