C-CAAL Message To You


We are honored to have you as our guest today.

In a time such as this, when the world is experiencing violence, terrorism, ethnic conflicts and wars, we hope the time you spend here enriches you, brings hope and provokes you to think more concerning the following questions:

– How can we live harmoniously in a diverse community?
– Can ethnic and cultural differences be the occasion for love as well as hate?
– What are the theological bases for community life and for peace among diverse peoples?

We strongly believe that a genuine faith grounded in the reconciliatory death of Christ and the hope of his resurrection offers a new possibility altogether to the world for social harmony. It does this by bringing all human beings to a common and shared future in Christ.

This is a call, a call to come together, to strive to know one another, and form genuine relationships. Remembering that “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things have passed away, behold, new things are from God, who reconciled us through Christ and gave us a ministry of reconciliation” (2 Cor. 5:17-18).
