SCGM Peacemakers Forum 2021 (9AM SGT)
MORNING SESSION: SEEKING PEACE IN THE CITY: THE COURAGE TO BE A PEACEMAKER
As Asia urbanises, the cities have become the harvest fields of the 21st century. It is a challenge to relate well in the world we live, at home, at work and at play, where differences abound and conflicts are real. It is easy to become self-righteous and judgemental. How shall we reach out to mend difficult relationships? What does it take to build up our community? Join our panel of speakers as they share principles and practices of being peacemakers as we seek to reveal God’s peace and presence in the city.
