Colombia: the Awaited Time


by Sandra Milena Rincón

CPT’s first peacemaker training in Colombia began 5 June for two weeks and will conclude the first two weeks of December.  The following excerpt comes from a much longer reflection.

Twelve Colombians participating in CPT training have fulfilled a long-awaited dream: expanding CPT’s perspective on peace work and training beyond white North American culture and the English language.

CPT is stepping onto a new path that will take us beyond collaboration with local communities in conflict zones to including substantial numbers of local peacemakers within CPT itself.  The Colombians who will become CPTers after training have committed their entire lives to justice and peace.  Surely, they will extend the vision and mission of CPT.
