ALL Forum invites you to join our Webinar for Peace in East & South East Asia
Conflict and oppression in the 21 st century has taken newer forms. Systems of Law, Order and Justice which were once the focal point for Nation building and prosperity have slowly evolved into oppressive mechanisms which control the liberty of fellow citizens in numerous ways.
In the light of such situations it is evident that we as Church must strongly participate in building peace for the world especially in Asia, inspired by the 1971 Synod of Bishops – ‘Justice in the World’ document (para 6), which says “Action on behalf of justice and participation in the transformation of the world fully appear to us as a constitutive dimension of the preaching of the Gospel, or, in other words, of the Church’s mission for the redemption of the human race and its liberation from every oppressive situation.”
Therefore, Asian Lay Leaders (ALL) Forum aspires to organize a one day webinar for peace in Hong Kong, Myanmar, Philippines, Korean Peninsula and the said region by commemorating the 50th anniversary of the important document ‘Justice in the World’, which requires the Church to be renewed and also reformed. It is so that we invite all the peace-loving people in Asia to understand deeply the situation unfolding in East and South East Asia and what role the Laity and Church must play in order to promote peace and justice
