God Where Are You?

Gedächtniskirche Berlin To all the victims of terror, war and other forms of violence The God I know Rests in the shadow of my house. Each day he begs a bit of rice And even more, a gaze of love, a welcoming face.

And on Earth Peace

No matter where one is in the Christian parts of the world, Christmas is a special time for families to get together, a time to set aside any disagreements and to celebrate the sharing of life together. I have often reflected on the story of Christmas eve at Ypres in Belgium in 1914. German troops on one side, and British soldiers entrenched on the other, began singing Silent Night in their own languages. Eventually, soldiers emerged from their trenches and met in "no man's land", setting up a Christmas tree and exchanging gifts such as cigars, jam and whisky. No shots were fired. This was a moment of Christmas peace when the human spirit rose above the conflict that engulfed them.

The Africa Cluster meeting of this year was held at Mill Hill house Nairobi, from the 7th to the 11th November 2016. These meetings where constituted by Chapter 2010 with the aim of creating a Forum where the Society Representatives from the six African countries with a Mill Hill presence come together once a year. In the presence of the Councillor for Africa they share how the members in their respective countries are living out the Society’s mission priorities, the needs, joys and experience of their local areas. They also discuss matters of Society Policy and its implementation, and make recommendations to the General Council for future planning. It’s also an opportunity for the Councillor for Africa representing the General Council to brief the leaders of some of latest developments in the Society.
