God so loved the people of the world

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is March 21, the anniversary of the Sharpeville Massacre in 1960. In Canada, the Canadian Ecumenical Anti-Racism Network (CEARN) has developed a week of study, prayer, and reflection on issues of racism in our world and in our communities. Entitled “God so loved the people of the world”, the week will be observed from March 19-26, 2006. A resource kit is available for download.

The Canadian Ecumenical Anti-Racism Network (CEARN): This network is an expression of Canadian churches working together to support anti-racism programs and educators who are working in member churches, sharing resources and learning among anti-racism educators, and supporting long-term change in Canadian churches and church organizations.

The CEARN Steering Committee is made up of representatives from various Christian denominations, and also benefits from the active participation and leadership of staff from sister ecumenical organizations, the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada (WICC) and KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives.
