The Christian Cultural Awareness & Assistance League (C-CAAL)
C-CAAL is a non-profit organization that seeks to promote the awareness of cultural diversity, to celebrate the unity of the human race and to bring people of different cultural backgrounds together to share the love of Christ in freedom.
It was initiated in 2000 by Rev. Phoebe Nyiraneza, guided by the late Dr. A.J. Conyers. Rev. Phoebe saw a need for people of various races, ethnic and cultural backgrounds to come together and dialogue on the Christian idea of Human Community.
Since then, C-CAAL has established a foothold in the community and has held seminars on the theme of social harmony & reconciliation in various churches & universities. C-CAAL has assisted people affected by ethnic violence with rebuilding their socio-economical lives.
C-CAAL is founded on both biblical and theological ideals:
Biblical: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things are from God, who reconciled us to God through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:17-18).
For all you who were baptized into Christ, have clothed yourself with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:27).
Theological: The resurrection of Christ does not mean a possibility within the world and it’s history, but a NEW possibility altogether for the world, for the existence, and for history. – J. Moltmann.
