This document affirmed that peacemaking is a central task of individuals and communities who follow Jesus Christ. It celebrated the long history and faithful witness of Presbyterian peacemakers. And it called the church to renewed, intentional ministries seeking peace and pursuing justice.
The Peacemaking Offering was established to help fund peacemaking ministries across the Presbyterian Church. The Presbyterian Peacemaking Program was created to engage in ministry and to support Presbyterians, congregations, synods, and other groups in their ministries.
Over the next month, an idea for celebrating this anniversary will be shared each day on this blog. If that's too long to wait, check them out now.
