JuneSeries 2017: Reconciliation
(2 Cor. 5:19)
“The truth of human freedom lies in the love that breaks down barriers” – Jurgen Moltmann
What do our mobile phones, video games, computers and other electronic devices have to do with war, poverty and displacement of millions of Congolese?
When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers is an ancient proverb of the Kikuyu people, a tribal group in Kenya, Africa. It is true today as when the words were first spoken thousands of years ago. In essence it means that when powerful institutions fight, it is those lower in the social class that suffer most. Fittingly, it is the title of the award-winning documentary film: When Elephants Fight. This 90mins film spotlights the complicity of multinational corporations and corrupt politicians in the illicit trade of conflict minerals in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), which threatens human rights and perpetuates the deadliest conflict since WWII.
We will be showing this film on Sunday, June 11th 2017. After the film we will have a break for refreshment and networking, then reconvene for a panel discussion on issues relating to the documentary as it affects local families especially those from the BAME communities. Questions and contributions will be taken from the audience, and we will close with a call to action by signing a petition aimed at raising the DRC out of 20 years of war, and 130 years of exploitation and underdevelopment.

Stuart became a Christian in Northern Ireland while serving in the RAF in the 1960s.
Stuart was Christian Solidarity Worldwide’s (CSW) National Director for 19 years and is now CSW’s Special Ambassador.
Stuart has travelled extensively to countries where Christians and others suffer persecution for their religious beliefs. He has carried out briefings in the US Congress and Senate, given evidence in hearings at the United Nations High Commission for Refugees and has spoken at the European and UK parliaments.
In recent years, his work has involved securing the safety of several Christian families from a number of countries who had to leave their homes because of their faith. Very recently he briefed the United Nations Commission of Inquiry on North Korea.
Stuart is the author of God’s Adventurer, an exciting and moving account of his work with persecuted Christians.
In reference to this year’s theme, Jurgen Moltmann (Writer and Theologian) once said, “the truth of human freedom lies in the love that breaks down barriers”
