South Sudan’s Christian leaders pray for peace

August 22, 2016

Christian leaders in South Sudan gathered at the Anglican cathedral in Juba, the nation’s capital, on August 18 to pray for peace in the strife-torn land.

The Catholic archbishop of the city called upon the leaders of the various ecclesial communities to “work together as a team in the whole country to embrace peace and love among ourselves.”

“In South Sudan you have 64 tribes,” said a Kenyan Anglican leader. “And God has not created all these tribes in Africa that we may hate each other; but to build strong unity and love among ourselves.”
