I would love to see CPT encourage demonstrations [against violent toys] in other cities by sharing the songs or advising local groups. It would fit many of us who support CPT but find ourselves called to ministries that make even brief delegations problematic.

I am really excited to hear about your [undoing racism] work. It is an issue that, as white people, we have the choice to ignore, but I am so glad you are choosing not to do that.

Our heads are bowed in honor of your incredible work of accompanying the Awá people [in Colombia]. May the world be transformed by your example.

I value and admire your work with those who need accompaniment. Violence has taken the lives of the best that we have, or exiled them, or displaced them. I dream of a world worthy of our sons and daughters, our miners, our teachers. A country that kills its teachers has forgotten who taught it to read, and that in the oldest notebooks the children used to write the letter “L” for love, the “H” for hope, the “N” for nonviolence, and the “S” for struggle for a more just society. May God bless and protect your journey.

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
