Peacemaking Offering

Jesus reminds us that “blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God.” (Matthew 5:9). Peacemaking is our calling as Christians, today as in every age. The way we make peace, especially in a violent and conflict-ridden world and in a country engaged in highly-charged political campaigns, is not by eliminating all conflicts but by learning to address them through peaceful means – dialogue, education, and knowledge. You can become personally involved in peacemaking by giving generously to the annual Presbyterian Peacemaking Offering, which is collected on and around World Communion Sunday in the fall.
