Talking Peace Postively

This was the title of a workshop we facilitated at Colwyn Bay Meeting House at the beginning of Quaker Week, on 1st October. The workshop was attended by local Friends and Attenders, as well as participants from peace and Amnesty groups. Looking at current peace challenges and concerns, the group was encouraged to explore differences in our understanding and in our responses, and to identify some of the root causes of violent conflict.
