Can Enemies Become Friends? Adventures in Reconciliation

A core conviction of the Anabaptist Network is: ‘Peace is at the heart of the gospel. As followers of Jesus in a divided and violent world, we are committed to finding non- violent alternatives and to learning how to make peace between individuals, within and among churches, in society and between nations.’

So we have organised this day conference and invited a number of friends to help us pursue this commitment to learn more about reconciliation and peace-making.
