Subject: Webcast of Opening Session, Keynote Speech

We're webcasting the opening session and keynote speech by Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee.  
Please join us at 9:00am EDT today.
If you can't be here, we hope you'll enjoy this webcast of one of our most exciting guests.  Leymah Gbowee is a Nobel Peace Prize winner who helped stop a civil war in Liberia, an inspiration to millions who struggle for peace and justice daily.

At this year's CUG, we’ll be struggling with some of life's most important questions. Why is there so much anger and hatred abounding in humanity? Why do civilized people fight terrible civil wars? How can genocide take place? And perhaps most importantly,
why has the church of Jesus Christ not been able to bring more love and peace to the world?
One of our most anticipated workshops this year will concern religious extremism and ways people of faith can respond to it. We will hear from a Nobel Peace Prize winner, filmmakers, and from Rev. Olav Fikse Tveit, General Secretary of the World Council of Churches. And we will remember the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in a service of worship at the National Cathedral.

Conflict is a part of the human condition, but each of us can improve our conflict resolution skills and every Christian should do all they can to bring an end to war and violence. This Christian Unity Gathering is a time of study, prayer, and reflection to equip for the days ahead.  If you can't be here this year, join us for this webcast and for the whole event next year.
