A Season of Peace 2017 September 3 – October 1
“So he came and proclaimed peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near…” Ephesians 2:17
About the 2017 Season of Peace: This four-week pilgrimage is designed to deepen the pursuit of peace for congregations, small groups, families, and individuals. Through daily “Path of Peace” reflections, “Peace Cards” for children and families, Bible and book studies for adults, children’s curriculum, an intergenerational peace fair, and other downloadable resources, Presbyterians are invited to define and deepen their calling as a peacemaker.
This season is a time of encouragement, challenge, inspiration, and education culminating in the Peace & Global Witness Offering, taken up on World Communion Sunday.
Through the 29 days of this year’s Season of Peace, we are invited to Commit to the Gospel of Peace:
- Confess our Complicity
- Reclaim Christ the Peacemaker
- Practice New Peace Strategies
- Transform our Structures and Work for Peace
