en - Whither the Synod of the Amazon?

Action - 2 November 2019

`We arrive at the peaceful and serene Amazonian rivers that head towards the sea… the document is a vibrant, powerful and profound river that brings together many currents from different countries and from the experience of the Amazonian churches.

en - Impressions of the `Campus de la Transition’

Action - 21 October 2019

`Everything is a miracle, eternity in the present moment. God is the life that makes the grass to sprout and the trees to grow. Believers ought to be the first ecologists…. I am part of the mystery of life, each element has its integral part, like a beautiful symphony where even the silences have their importance’. (La Puissance de la Moderation’ by Pierre Rabhi)
There were so many impressions it is difficult to know where to begin. I stayed at the Campus for Transition for 2 weeks and (...)

1. Observations : Un sentier, une auto-route !
Les inégalités se font voir au grand jour en divers domaines de la vie, permettez-moi de me limiter sur l’aspect du développement dans le domaine de moyens de déplacement. C’est vraiment un choc quand on vient d’un pays où on doit emprunter des sentiers ou des routes pleines des trous, de la boue ou de la poussière pour se déplacer et qu’on se retrouve dans un pays très développé en infrastructure routière. Je suis originaire de la RDC à l’Est. Une (...)

es - Nuevas Dictaduras

Action - 17 de septiembre de 2019

En la Roma antigua, la dictadura era una institución que permitía al senado otorgar un poder extraordinario a un solo individuo para resolver una situación de crisis. Esta institución era temporal para que después de la emergencia, el poder regresara a la asamblea de los representantes de los ciudadanos.
Desgraciadamente, no todos los dictadores fueron eficaces, ni actuaron con honestidad. El período del cargo se extendió y el dictador de volvió un gobernante absoluto que se constituyó a sí mismo (...)

Grupo Fé e Ação da Paróquia Nossa Senhora Aparecida
Em realidade o nome original seria “Fé e Política”, mas substituímos a palavra “política” por “Ação” devido ao entendimento popular desse termo como algo indesejável, visto as negociatas, falcatruas, desonestidades impuras que tramitam nas ações, que acontecem na política de nosso país.
Esse grupo foi formado sob algumas motivações e citarei três delas entre outras:
1- Nosso Bairro é super-habitado e considerado socialmente como lugar de classe média (...)

en - My Journey to Earth Literacy

Témoignages - 20 August 2019

I live alone, and though I work part time in two different capacities, my sole group work is with JPIC, so my contribution here is a bit personal.
` I inherited a love of nature from my mother, who grew up just outside our town, in a house with a large garden leading down to the river. She was a nature lover, and knew and cared for many of the garden flowers. But I wanted to become familiar with the natural world of birds, trees, flowers etc. that were all around. But my journey to earth (...)

en - Faith leaders and climate change

Action - 9 July 2019

Have faith leaders a special part to play as we face climate and environmental chaos ? It seems so. At the recent Climate Coalition lobby of Parliament in the UK which attracted over 12.000 people, there was a workshop given by a Muslim from Islamic Relief telling how he got a group of Imams together to educate them in the realities of climate change. They needed it, and apparently it was effective as a start. Why specially work on faith leaders ?
Apparently 50% of schools world wide (...)
