We are delighted that Bruce Kent and Dr Valerie Flessati, Vice Presidents of Pax Christi England and Wales, have been awarded The Lambeth Cross for Ecumenism. “For exceptional, tireless and lifelong dedication to the Christian ecumenical search for peace, both individually and together.” Congratulations to them both for this well deserved recognition.
People Putting Peace Into Action
Peace – based on justice. A world where human rights are respected, basic needs are met, people feel safe and valued in their communities and we care for our common home
Reconciliation – a process which begins when people try to mend relationships – between individuals or whole countries after times of violence or dispute
Nonviolence – a way of living and making choices that respects others and offers alternatives to violence and war
