A Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace in Korea: Exodus from division and nuclear threats A Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace in Korea: Exodus from division and nuclear threats
The summer in Korea is a lush and attractive season for vacationers. Yet it is far more than that. It is a period haunted by heavy historical memories. June 25 marks the day of the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950; July 27, the day of the conclusion of armistice in 1953; and August 15, the day of liberation from Japanese occupation in 1945, which immediately led to the division between North and South by the Soviet Union and the United States.

Africa churches unite behind a nuclear weapons ban treaty Africa churches unite behind a nuclear weapons ban treaty
Africa space is a religious space, a combination of 54 states from North to East, West to South. Differences in culture and religious persuasion exist, but a unity of purpose is always on peace and development. What is not negotiable is the strong believe in God, the piousness of Africans.
