Making peace possible


The theme of our closing worship was John 21: 3-13 read in four languages in which we heard of the great catch of fish when the disciples threw the net on the other side of the boat. Right on message, we went out to a fish restaurant in a simple restaurant with a banana leaf roof. Choosing between a parrot fish and a butter fish was the challenge of the night, as was eating lobster with a plastic fork!

Thought: We go to the lake shore, carrying our nets, bringing along the fruits you help us gather. These fruits are not just for ourselves - they are meant to be shared. We commit ourselves to walk in the margins of life, seeking in the encounter with the other, a way to live the gospel of peace and justice.
