Resolution 29

The Life and Witness of the Christian Community - Peace and War

Believing that peace within the nation and among the nations is bound up with the acceptance of Christian principles in the ordering of social and industrial life, the Conference reaffirms the Resolutions (73-80) of the Lambeth Conference of 1920, which deal with that subject. While there is in many countries an increasing desire for justice and therefore a growing will to peace, the world is still faced with grave social and economic evils which are an offence to the Christian conscience, and a menance to peace. All these evils call for the best scientific treatment on international lines, and also for a practical application of the principle of united service and self-sacrifice on the part of all Christian people.
