The 2016 Season of Peace theme is “Come to the Table of Peace”
Jesus calls us to be peacemakers.“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18–19
For over 30 years, the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) have been committed to pursuing a peaceful and just world. Peace seekers and advocates, those who work and pray for reconciliation and justice, have found their home in the Presbyterian peacemaking community. The 2016 Season of Peace begins Sunday September 4, 2016 through Sunday October 2, 2016 when churches all over the world celebrate World Communion Sunday.
