The Decade to Overcome Violence 2001 – 2010

Filed under: World Council of Churches — David Jenkins @ 11:31 pm

This sterling effort from the World Council of Chuches will be over in May 2010.

Churches Seeking Reconciliation and Peace (DOV) calls all the worlds people to engage in violence prevention, the pursuit of justice and peacemaking.

And there will be a celebration:

The International Ecumenical Peace Convocation will mark the conclusion of the WCC Decade to Overcome Violence. It will be both the harvest festival of the DOV and a planting season for fresh initiatives.

So how did they do?
