For a New Africa
In 1998, the eighth assembly of the World Council of Churches made a special pledge to accompany Africa on a "Journey of Hope". The overall aim of the ecumenical focus on Africa is to provide a space in which the churches, together with the national councils of churches, sub-regional fellowships and the All Africa Conference of Churches may become fully involved in Africa's re-awakening. This book records the visit of the general and WCC officers to Kenya and Rwanda in April 2004. It is intended to provide institutional memory of the messages of hope delivered at various venues in both countries, a witness that reached its climax at the national stadium in Kigali on April 18, 2004.
