Peace with Justice Sunday is coming May 22, 2016. This Special Sunday of The United Methodist Church makes possible our ongoing ministries of peace and reconciliation.
We have prepared a special toolkit with everything you need to lead your congregation to promote peace and justice. The ready-to-use resources will save you time and energy.
Peace with Justice grant applicants must strive to achieve at least one of the following objectives:
- Assist United Methodists in understanding and responding to violence and militarism;
- Involve United Methodists in efforts to end global conflicts and violent aggression;
- Promote just national and international policies and actions seeking to restore communities and respond to the disproportionate effect of injustices on racial and ethnic people; and
- Support policies that promote systematic economic justice and the self-development of peoples.
I pray that this toolkit will empower you to lead your congregation to stand with us.
May the peace of Christ be with you,
Rev. Jaye N. White
