The Big Tent is a unique experience in the life of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Ten different conferences will gather at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Atlanta on June 11-13, 2009. Worship, workshops, and other elements will be shared in common. Each conference will have its own emphasis.
The 2009 Peacemaking Conference will take place under the Big Tent. This year's theme is "and the Word became flesh . . . and moved into the neighborhood."
Peacemaking Conference participants will have the opportunity to visit significant sites in metropolitan Atlanta where peacemaking is taking place, share stories from our own neighborhoods, and engage in public witness, small group discussions and conversations on current issues as we explore how to do justice and seek peace. There's a printer-friendly flier (PDF) and a bulletin insert (PDF) available to help promote the 2009 Peacemaking Conference.
