Building Peace on Earth

Report of the International Ecumenical Peace Convocation

Edited by: Mathews George Chunakara

The International Ecumenical Peace Convocation (IEPC), organized by the World Council of Churches in May 2011, brought together more than 1,000 participants from more than 100 countries. This historic gathering encouraged individuals and churches to renew their commitment to nonviolence and peace with justice, and it gave impetus for the wider ecumenical family and its related constituencies to pursue their search for peace. This book is the final report of the Convocation, offering an overview of the entire proceedings of the IEPC - from opening plenary, to thematic plenaries, to workshops and side events. With a wealth of ideas and reflections on peace with justice, the book serves not only as a record of this historic event, but also as a helpful toolkit for peacemakers and an engagement with the issues and themes related to the 2013 WCC assembly theme: "God of life, lead us to justice and peace."
