Praying for peace in the Middle East


Monday, 11 Aug 2014

People from all faiths will come together at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture at CSU in Canberra this week for a service of peace for those suffering in the Middle East. The service, For the sake of humanity, is being hosted by the Centre in conjunction with the Canberra Interfaith Forum and the ACT Council of Churches. Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture Executive Director the Right Reverend Professor Stephen Pickard said, "The service calls people of all faiths and good will to join together in an act of solidarity with those who are suffering and victims of violence in the Middle East, whether it is Iraq, Gaza, Southern Israel, Syria or elsewhere. This is a time for the bonds of our common humanity to be recognised. Lament and yearning for peace are the themes for the service. There will be songs by the Canberra based Chorus of Women, dance, symbol and reflections". The service will be held from 6pm to 6:45pm on Wednesday 13 August in The Chapel at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, 15 Blackall Street, Barton, ACT. For more information contact Ms Margaret Roberts from the ACC&C on (02) 6272 6203 or send an email acc-c@csu.edu.au.
