Welcome to the Fellowship of Reconciliation in Scotland.
Scottish Charity SC012408
For over 75 years the Fellowship of Reconciliation in Scotland has been engaged in the quest for international justice and peace. Many of us are members of other peace organisations. We are committed to the campaigns for nuclear disarmament here and across the world, to a view of human security to meet people's needs and to finding ways of overcoming the scourge of sectarianism and other forms of religious intolerance.
We are part of the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR) which has 85 branches, groups, and affiliates in 51 countries on all continents who share a vision of a world where conflicts are resolved through nonviolent means, where justice is sought as a basis for peace. While coming from diverse religious backgrounds, all members of IFOR have a common belief in the transforming power of nonviolence and reconciliation. IFOR has taken a consistent stance against war and its preparation throughout its history.
In celebration and thanksgiving for years of effort in the cause of peace, the Fellowship in Scotland plans to extend its work to include a positive and dynamic approach to Peace Education.
The Fellowship of Reconciliation in Scotland needs people who are willing to work for the growth of the movement in schools, churches, work places, universities, colleges, community centres and wherever people show a positive interest in working together for justice and peace throughout the world.
You can be part of this forward move by becoming a member of the Fellowship of Reconciliation in Scotland and, by so doing, take the first step towards the making of a world in which international peace has a fair and equal chance. Why not take this step today?
Our members commit themselves to active non-violence as a way of life and as a means of personal transformation.
We can examine our own life style to ensure we are doing as much as we can to reduce the support for violence in our world. For example are we:
· Investing our money with organisations which reject the arms trade?
· Buying goods and services which have not been created by violating the environment or oppressed workers?
· Always operating in a non violent way towards others and challenging others in our locality or in our workplace who behave belligerently?
