The event is second in a series of regional webinars organised by the World Council of Churches (WCC) Commission of the Churches on International Affairs in collaboration with the WCC Spiritual Life. It is part of many virtual events organised this year to mark the 75th anniversary of the Commission of the Churches on International Affairs.
Remembering massacres, panelists will explore questions such as: How do we recognise these tragedies, and celebrate the survival, resistance, resilience, and heroes of these communities? How do we honour their martyrdom? What is done to prevent us from falling into amnesia or denial?
Speakers will include:
- Clémence Evelyne Fassinou, Benin
- Francis Muroki, Kenya
- Rev. Dr Frank Chikane, South Africa
- Rev. Dr Nagaju Muke, Rwanda
- Father Michael, South Africa
Prof. Dr Isabel Apawo Phiri, World Council of Churches deputy general secretary
