Faith and spirituality

Five Christians were arrested for gluing themselves together to block one of the entrances to the DSEi arms fair last week. In so doing, they have drawn a lot of attention to the role of the UK in the global arms trade, the state that facilitates the proliferation of weapons for private profit, and what it means to be a peacemaker.
Twice a year, members of the SPEAK Network come together to dream dreams, plan plans and look to the future of the network. We call it 'Flower Model' because we want to function like a single organism, drawing strength and life from all of the constituent parts. If you'd like to get more involved in planning and growing the network, join us 17th to 18th November, at Desmond Tutu House in Bradford.
SPEAK are long-time supporters of Workshop, a project which provides a course of Christian learning to Churches and individuals who are keen to explore faith in a broad and practical way. Its founder, Noel Moules, has taken part in SPEAK events in the past, and has recently release a book: "Fingerprints of Fire, Footprints of Peace". Former SPEAK director Jo Frew reviews it here...

We would be really grateful for your prayer support, and have drawn up some monthly prayer points that can be used individually or with your local SPEAK group.
