A special gift to the Peacemaking Offering

2010peacemaking-offering-mosaic-box 2010 is the thirtieth anniversary of the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program and the Peacemaking Offering, following the adoption by the General Assembly of Peacemaking: The Believers’ Calling, which called for a new emphasis on peacemaking across the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). This year as your church plans to receive this Offering, remember the peacemakers of years past. Have you ever attended a peacemaking conference or seminar? Have you made use of resources, Bible studies or devotionals? Have you heard the witness of an International Peacemaker? Have you participated in a travel/study seminar? Consider giving a special gift of $30 either through your congregation’s receiving of the offering, or online now. Make this year a time to renew your commitment to peacemaking as part of your calling as a follower of Christ, who not only taught us the ways of peace but is our peace.

The theme for the 2010 Offering is “Celebrate Christ, Our Peace.” The art is The Last Supper, a serigraph by John August Swanson.
