Peace is possible with your help
As we gather with our friends and family this Christmas, it’s the perfect time to remember people around the world whose lives have been damaged by conflict.
Violence robs people of the chance to fulfil their God-given potential. It tears families apart and leaves children fearful, anxious and traumatised.
By using our church resources to support our Christmas Aid Christmas Appeal, you and your church can stand together with people on the frontline of peacemaking – like Bishop Paride Taban.
Love, joy, peace
Bishop Paride (above) is a UN peace prize winner and member of the South Sudan Council of Churches (SSCC). Together with Christian Aid, he and the SSCC have been calling for peace in South Sudan.
Bishop Paride believes that peace is something you practise and every day he repeats 28 words for peace starting with ‘Love, joy, peace'. He says, ‘If all put these words into their hearts, and every day they repeat them, there will be peace in South Sudan.'
