Recorded in a quiet spot at the buzzing Churches Together in England Forum, Alessia is in conversation with Oliver Robertson, a young Quaker who works for the Fellowship of Reconciliation. At the eve of one of the two Sundays a year dedicated to peace, they talked about reconciliation, non-violence and how their two different brands of Christianity have a lot in common even with the theory of Just War in Catholic teachings.

Oliver Robertson is a Quaker and works for the Fellowship of Reconciliation, an international movement of people who commit themselves to active nonviolence as a way of life and as a means of personal, social, economic and political transformation. Based in the Christian tradition, it was founded in 1914, and has permanent representation at the United Nations. You can find more about it or get involved here.
