Compassion, Peace and Justice
Sara Lisherness, Director
The Compassion, Peace and Justice ministry area helps Presbyterians respond to the needs of the world’s most vulnerable people, address injustice in all areas of life and advocate for peaceful solutions to conflict. This ministry area also provides disaster relief, direct service, capacity building and development assistance to marginalized communities nationally and around the world.
International Peacemakers coming to the U.S.

The leaders from partner denominations and organizations around the world visit each year to interpret issues of peace and justice. More than 220 from more than 57 countries have participated in the program since 1984.

I will pray that the Compassion-Peace-Justice branch of PCUSA would adopt a limb in the quest to address the over-population in our prisons and jails of those diagnosed with severe mental illness. The numbers of incarcerated, ill people who are serving sentences for crimes and poor choices made during a mental health crisis is staggering. PSMIN is well aware of the travesties visited upon these unfortunate and marginalized individuals and the families who love them. Thank you for all you do.
Dear Sara...What address should I use to send you a free sample of my book, Courage to Think Differently with a preface by Walter Brueggemann and Foreword by Frances Moore Lappe? Thank you....George...author of Beyond Guilt that PCUSA bought 300 copies of years ago.
"Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven(Matt5:10) Peace and Justice to all have to be practiced irrespective of caste,color,creed,age and sex. I am glad I am serving the Peacemaking Committee of the Presbytery of Philadelphia.Together we can acheive many things for God and the people who are being persecuted in many countries in particular India,Pakistan,Bangladesh and other countries.We have to pray and fight for the injustice to these people around the world. God will definately lead in this battle against those who are working to supress,oppress the Christians all over the world. Everybodys should pray and uphold the Missionaries,Preachers,lay persons and Organizations involved, and working for Peace and Justice.
