[World Council of Churches] With a visit to Colombia Aug. 8-11, a World Council of Churches delegation will express solidarity with the Colombian government, churches and people as they collaborate in the design, implementation and advocacy for the construction of peace in the country.

Led by the Rev. Kenneth Mtata, WCC program director for public witness and diakonia, the delegation will meet state officials, ecumenical partners and the Latin American Conference of Bishops, as well as attend the International Conference for Reconciliation in Colombia, an event organized by DiPaz (Interchurch Dialogue for Peace in Colombia).
