Please keep in your hearts survivors of two boats that capsized this month in the Aegean sea a week apart from each other.

Pray for the families, friends and loved ones of those nineteen men, women and children who drowned in this narrow, perilous strait between Turkey and Greece.


The CPT community from Europe, joined by peacemakers from other parts of the world, gathered this week for their annual convergence meeting in the Netherlands. Please keep them in your thoughts as they work together on undoing oppressions, networking, strategising and planning the peacework around Europe and beyond.
