This post is based on a plenary presentation was made at the ACCORD Annual meeting in North Carolina on Oct. 25, 2016 by Rupen Das to the 70+ Christian US relief and development member NGOs. It is presented here in two parts.

I was asked to share my perspective on the Syrian conflict and the humanitarian crisis and where I see it going.

There are times in history when because of the horrors of the events, the international community is forced to take stock. In recent history, the Biafran crisis of the late 1960s was one such time, out of which Médecins Sans Frontières...

I have a confession to make. I don’t like the Christmas season. But how can someone who is supposed to be a mature Christian leader not like the Christmas season?

One reason, among many, I love working at IMES is its heartfelt commitment to peacebuilding and peace education. Yet, in the course of our work, we have often encountered opposition with regard to the task of building peace and its relevance for Christian life and service.

To preach the Gospel?

To know Christ and make Him known?”

To which my response is: “Yes, absolutely!”
