Journey of Hope

Towards a New Ecumenical Africa

By Hugh McCullum, Nicholas Otieno

At the eighth assembly of the World Council of Churches in Zimbabwe in 1998, the powerful political drama entitled A Journey of Hope was presented. This book focuses on the issues highlighted through the play, inspiring church commitment and solidarity in Africa. The churches and their peoples agreed that the focus on Africa would be one of wholehearted support, including an emphasis on transformation of Africa's social, political, and economic systems in order to create a just society; a search for peace and reconciliation between people and communities; a fight to help contain and overcome the scourge of HIV/AIDS; an emphasis on good governance, ethical values, and stewardship; and the rights of African children to hope for a bright future.
