One Accord Workshop Plants the Seed of Peace for Cali Columbia
decades the Colombian people have been in the difficult situation
of having guerrilla and drug factions fighting for influence and
control in the country.
November 7-9, 1997 in Cali, where it was difficult to even walk
outside without worry of being shot or abducted, a group of 175
people came together for three days for a "One Accord"
peace workshop. Their focus was to make a difference, to create
a seed that would be a focal point for peace, starting with them.
Gibson, one of the IIWP Workshop facilitators said, "It was
inspiring to acknowledge these people for simply showing up and
taking on peace as their cause when they could so easily have just
stayed home out looking at the situation as insurmountable."
mix of people was diverse, but all were focused on peace. One of
the highlights was a testimony by a former guerilla that transformed
himself from machine-gun and grenade wielding warrior to a warrior
for Peace and for Spirit.
