  • Clergy in the Diocese of Port Moresby have been discussing the rise of violence

    13 May 2013

    Anglican clergy in the Diocese of Port Moresby have been discussing the rise of violence in PNG society and the harm it is causing to individuals, families and communities. The starting point for our reflection was Genesis 1.27: “So God created human beings, making them like himself. He created them male and female”. The fundamental point is the equal value to God of male and female. This means that the basic call to everyone is to respect the God-given life of each other. No respect is shown in rape and murder, by violence towards women, by cruel treatment of children or by victimization of vulnerable people. The call to respect each other means that we must all say “no to violence” in all its forms. more»
