“Peace basically means a state of affairs where a country pursues domestic and foreign policy in which the needs and rights of people are met and honored.” What does peace mean in your community? “Tolerance and coexistence.

"Peace to me means communities of solidarity, it means telling the truth, and caring for one another. I work with young people, in particular young women. We are creating a microcosm in the community that we want to create on a whole by practicing solidarity across race, class, age, and other differences. I know that the young women we work with with have the wisdom to amplify what they learn." - Devon Little, SPI Participant, United States #CJPSPI

On May 16, the 9th graduating class of STEP (Study and Training for Effective Pastoral Ministry) gathered with family and friends at Landis Homes, Lititz, Pa. for a celebration banquet and graduation. Ten students earned a Certificate in Pastoral Ministry and come from Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, Quakertown, Lebanon and Lancaster Co.) We’ll miss them, but we are thrilled with their accomplishment and look forward to seeing the ways they invest their lives in witness, service and ministry in the name of Jesus Christ – his church and mission.

"..Peace means to me safety..dignity, justice, well-being, and equal access to the basic needs.” Tarek Chebli #CJPSPI http://t.co/JpC5yLpdTw

“Peacebuilding is a long term process through which peace in conflict-prone areas can be achieved. The Lebanese Organization of Studies and Training (LOST) plays an important role in promoting Peacebuilding in the areas that experience multiple layers of conflict, be them structural (sectarian), relational, cultural, and personal. In 2014, LOST, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and forum zfd, Germany organized a conference entitled 'Civil Peace Building Initiatives in Northern Bekaa.' This conference aimed to create an independent platform for local CSOs and international agencies to openly explore the potential initiatives that address and tackle the current sectarian conflict. As a member of LOST, peace means to me safety, security, dignity, justice, well-being, and equal access to the basic needs.” www.lostlb.org Tarek Chebli, SPI Participant, Lebanon #CJPSPI
