Dr. Gary Mason, our guest preacher this weekend. Gary played an instrumental role in the Northern Irish Peace Process and has been formally recognized by Queen Elizabeth II for his work in peace making and reconciliation.  While serving as the pastor of the East Belfast Mission, Gary played a leading role in establishing the Skainos project in inner city Belfast, a world class urban social justice center, developed in a post-conflict society as a model of coexistence and shared space. He is frequently sought out locally, nationally and internationally to share his experiences on community transformation, social justice, conflict transformation, peace building and the role of religion in conflict.
