VISION FOR, AND THE COST OF, PEACEMAKING: Lessons From West Wing
STOCKI SURMISES THE ENOUGH FOOD FOR EVERYONE... IF CAMPAIGN

Lyric For The Day the IF Camapign is Launched (23.1.13) from Read All About It (Pt III) by Emeli Sandé

IF

“You've got the words to change a nation

But you're biting your tongue

You've spent a life time stuck in silence

Afraid you'll say something wrong

If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?

So come, on come on

Come on, come on...”

-     From Read All About It (Pt III) by Emeli Sandé

This song, so well known now, is a perfect lyric for the day when TEAR Fund, Christian Aid and other NGOs launch their new IF campaign, Enough Food For Everyone. We have what it takes to feed the world. What IF we just did it? The song is a song of commitment and a cry of encouragement to do what is possible. The potential is here. We all need to lift that potential and do it. This campaign will be a pressure group on the G8 leaders as they arrive in Enniskillen in June. Join the song for change.

And in Northern Ireland. There are enough peacemakers to win. What if we believed in ourselves and what God has made us and redeemed
us to be? What if we overcame our fears to get it wrong or be misunderstood? What if we stepped out of our silent hope for peace and acted for peace? What if we told a different story? What if we sang a different song? On Saturday in the 4 Corners of Belfast there will be short prayer events at 11.30 leading to a coming together of the 4 Corners of the city at Dock Church in the Titanic Quarter at lunchtime (info on site http://www.4cornersfestival.com/events/).

Come on, come on! Sing and shout for change.
