From Mennonite World Conference–
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, our Prince of Peace!
We write to invite you and your congregation to observe Peace Sunday together with brothers and sisters in the global Anabaptist church family on 23 September 2018.
The theme for this year’s Peace Sunday is: “A Renewed Peace Church Welcomes the Stranger.” Throughout the biblical narrative we encounter a God who reminds his people to show hospitality to others, especially those who are the most vulnerable in society – the widow, the orphan, and the alien. If our desire is to be a Renewed Peace Church, how, therefore, do we faithfully witness to this in our context?
Within the Peace Sunday Resources PDF, there are stories and reflections on peace from people all over the world. Scroll to page 11 to start reading the stories.
