journeyings

 

It was a privelege to be asked to represent the British Methodist Church at the Methodist Conference of Sri Lanka. It was also good to learn about the great strides being taken to restore peace in the country and the many challenges that face this nation post-conflict. The Methodist Church in Sri Lanka is celebrating its 200 year Jubilee this year and it was an opportunity to take a big photo too! Although we can't see everyone's faces here, the picture includes some really impressive people who have lead the Church through some really tough times. The Church in Sri Lanka is the only organisation that is inclusive of both Tamil and Singhala people, and although the Conference is in three languages, which makes it a bit slow at times, the desire to be inclusive and to bring peace through understanding is a most remarkable thing.
