Re-membering Peace: Still the Believers’ Calling
August 25-29, 2010
Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, New Mexico

In 1980, the 192nd GA of the UPCUSA adopted Peacemaking: The Believers’ Calling [PDF]. In 2010, the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program invites you to join us among the mesas of northern New Mexico as we practice the art of storytelling — weaving our stories of peacemaking together, discovering how we are already intertwined and bearing witness to our being knit together into Christ, who is our head. We will bring back together — re-member — those who have gone out to proclaim the good news of peace over the last 30 years (Isaiah 52:7, Nahum 1:15). In this seminar, we will live out the practice of anamnesis: remembering the places where the triune God has led us in the past, in light of our present realities, and looking with hope towards the future of peacemaking.

Join at Ghost Ranch for a time of re-membering:

  • Retell the Presbyterian stories of peacemaking.
  • Recognize the current strands of peacemaking throughout the church.
  • Renew our commitment to follow Jesus, living out the believers’ calling for this day and generations to come.

Within the cloud of witnesses, in a homecoming of peacemakers, seminar participants will re-member — retell the stories of our Presbyterian heritage of peacemaking.

Bearing witness to the ways in which we are knit together into Christ, we will re-member — weave together the many ways in which we continue to make peace in our world.

Strengthened by our gathering, we will re-member — renew our covenantal responsibility to go out into the world, living out the believers’ call, looking towards the needs of peacemakers yet to come.

The 2010 Peacemaking Seminar is designed for young adults and adults. Registration is limited. For more information contact Dayna Oliver.
