From a story on The Diocese of Salisbury website:
The Right Revd Dinis (pronounced ‘Dinnish’) Sengulane presented Bishop Nicholas with a pectoral cross made from two bullets and the firing bolt of a rifle – deadly artefacts of Mozambique’s 15 year civil war from the 1970s until the 1990s, now turned through creativity into symbols of peace.
The cross is a product of one of Bishop Dinis’ proudest achievements – the ‘Swords into Ploughshares’ initiative. When Mozambique’s civil war ended in 1992, the country was awash with weapons, much productive farmland was strewn with mines, and the younger generation had grown up knowing nothing but war.
Bishop Dinis created a scheme where more than 600,000 weapons were anonymously exchanged for items useful in civilian life, such as books, bicycles, building materials and sewing machines.
