Sometimes the way things coincide makes me smile. This afternoon I’ve been bundled up on the sofa, catching up on the happenings around the Summit of the Americas and the parallel Cumbre de los Pueblos, the Summit of the Peoples. Several of my dear friends are joining in this event in Cartagena, Colombia, and I just got a glimpse via skype of the discussions going on about the role of the churches in peacebuilding.
I hope there will be some hopeful news coming from both the official OAS event with heads of state from around the hemisphere, as well as the grassroots event. In the meantime, please keep the process in your thoughts and prayers, and take a look at Richard’s blog post on the subject.
