Here are some of the latest updates from Church & Peace:
– Neda Popovic and Mihael Secen, individual members of C&P and directors of
Intero Centar Croatia, are setting up a podcast studio for making podcasts
about LGBT and faith. They will offer an affirming message of God’s love in
their own language, a lifesaving message of hope – because Christ is
all-inclusive. For more info or if you want to become part of this project
by supporting it with your thoughts, prayers and financial contribution,
get in touch with Mihael and Neda via interocentar@gmail.com.
