Resolution V.3

A Call for Solidarity in Working for Justice, Peace and Reconciliation in the World

Whereas the last millennium, especially the twentieth century, has been characterised by human division, conflict, war and violence, both religious and civil, as well as economic and social injustices;

Whereas the Kingdom Jesus proclaimed and established is to be marked by reconciliation between God and humanity, and between peoples and His creation;

Whereas the work of the power of evil is to create divisions between humans and ruin the harmony that God intended; and

Whereas we have particularly experienced the demonic effects of division and conflict most recently in African nations fuelled by selfishness and greed for power;

This Conference believes that the people's hopes and aspirations for the third millennium will only be achieved if they are founded on the message of peace, reconciliation and practical steps taken to achieve the same; and

Therefore calls upon all governments, religions and people of good will

  1. to work for Peace and Reconciliation in order to make this world a better place for all its inhabitants and for posterity; and
  2. to engage decisively in reconciliation within families, congregations, residential areas and nations, and among nations, so that we may participate in our calling to be peacemakers, as servants of the Prince of Peace.
