Loudon Hamilton was one of the first people to work with MRA's founder Frank Buchman, when he visited Oxford in 1921. One evening Buchman was a guest in Loudon Hamilton's rooms in Christ Church at a meeting of the 'Beef and Beer Club'. Out of this grew the Oxford Group, which became known as Moral Re-Armament in 1938, and Initiatives of Change from 2001.
Loudon Hamilton tells the story in a booklet published in 1968, MRA: How it all began, which is available for download as a PDF file.
Who we are: Initiatives of Change (IofC) is a world-wide movement of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, who are committed to the transformation of society through changes in human motives and behaviour, starting with their own.
Purpose: We work to inspire, equip and connect people to address world needs, starting with themselves, in the areas of trustbuilding, ethical leadership and sustainable living.
