Peacemakers will travel throughout the church in September and October
The Presbyterian Peacemaking Program welcomes 14 peacemakers from 11 countries as they gather in Louisville, KY for orientation September 18-20. They will be traveling to congregations, mid-councils and other institutions from September 21-October 29.
These visits – which have happened annually since 1984, inform Presbyterians, open hearts and minds, touch lives, build relationships, and inspire new ministries. Check with your Mid-Council or contact the Peacemaking Program to see if a peacemaker will be in your area. And please pray for these peacemakers as they bring stories of peace and the need for peace in their countries and communities.
