Minute for Mission: A Season of Peace

Congregations of many denominations extend the peace of Christ with a blessing during their service. “The peace of Christ be with you (and also with you).” It is a blessing offered and a blessing returned in kind. The peace of Christ is part of what our faith offers to us. Extending the peace of Christ is part of an active, engaged faith — a witness to what it means for us to be building the household of God.

Season of Peace begins Sept. 6

In less than a month, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregations will begin observing the Season of Peace, a four-week spiritual journey designed to deepen the pursuit of peace.
