OUR ADVOCACY, IDENTITY, MISSION, AND VISION
We are praying for our children to declare what are real and what are merely facades in our society. We want to meet more mature people who would dream dreams with us. We want to encourage young women and men who would share their visions for our people. We believe our land and people are raising these prophets, dreamers, and visionaries right now in our midst!
In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams. (Acts 2:17)
What kind of peace we’re dreaming of:
:: Harmony with the Creator. This is Spiritual Transformation.
:: Harmony with our Being. This is Psycho-Social Transformation.
:: Harmony with Others. This is Socio-Political Transformation.
:: Harmony with the Creation. This is Economic-Ecological Transformation.
What we dream of being:
:: We dream to be a peace-building community—we’ll seek to demonstrate in our own lives and in our relationships the kind of harmonious and transformational peace we’re hoping for
:: We dream to be peace-building operatives—we’ll devote the same discipline and self-sacrifice to non-violent peacemaking that armies devote to war.
What we dream of doing:
:: To equip and multiply effective Peace and Reconciliation (PAR) Leaders for the global realities of the 21st Century
:: To support the PAR Leaders in organizing and nurturing their initial PAR Teams of volunteers in local conflict zones
:: To establish at least one contextually-relevant PAR Community in each of the 81 provinces in our country as home for local PAR Teams
:: To develop a national Network of PAR Communities that would work together to train more leaders, to organize more teams, and to establish more communities
What we dream of having:
:: We dream of having a Network of Peace and Reconciliation Communities throughout our beautiful land, who are organized in partnership with various parts of the people of God, who are mobilized to do ministries of justice and peace, and who will lovingly serve all the peoples of our land unconditionally regardless of religion, ethnicity, or political ideology, to the end that our land will experience shalom-transformation!
