The First World War, the Second World War, Syria has been in a state of war for many years… The fights between humankind have never stopped. Talking about peace and reconciliation is like a fairy tale. However, the Lord’s requirement is: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ (Luke 10:27). In this turbulent era, we must do our best to bring peace to the community. CEDAR promotes ‘Peace and Reconciliation projects, hoping that people of different ethnicities and religions can live peacefully in the same world.
‘love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you’ is difficult, but God has taught us how to do it.
