What Are You Doing on September 21?
1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
Revelation 22, NRSV
On Sunday September 21, 2008...
Will Your Church Be Praying for Peace?
Will Your Church Speak Up About Violence?
On Earth Peace invites your congregation to join the World Council of Churches' 2008 International Day of Prayer for Peace campaign.
You know your community.
Is there domestic violence, homicide, poverty, child abuse, racism?
You also know God has a different vision for life -- for abundant life, for dignity for all, for justice and shalom.
Will you consider calling together a public prayer service about your community's violence this September?
Hundreds of thousands of people from churches, synagogues, and mosques around the world will join together in the International Day of Prayer for Peace.
For participants connecting through On Earth Peace, there will be opportunities to connect with other peace-committed Christian congregations concerned about violence, access to On Earth Peace resources, and guidance on how to make praying and acting for God's peace an ongoing activity.
We look forward to working with you to creatively address the needs of your community with spiritual power. For more information and to register, please visit our website by clicking here.
Blessings and Peace,
