Abstract

This article gives the motivations, methodology and some results of a study done in Christian healing interventions in African contexts of  stress and violence. Healing in community has been viewed through the prism of “shalom”. Shalom occurs when people who are in a  right  relationship with God  and  each other enjoy and share together the resources of the earth  in ways  that  show Christ  is Lord of all creation. Charts are given showing  the various kinds of community needs, ways to intervene, and some indications of ways to evaluate the interventions.
