Peace with Justice

In Arizona border towns, communities facing social challenges are dramatically divided. In Liberian villages, citizens’ human rights are being violated. In local U.S. communities, women and girls are being bought and sold against their will.

Moved by Christ’s love to pursue reconciliation and peace, honoring the dignity of every individual made in God’s image, The United Methodist Church is unwilling to turn a blind eye to injustice. Although you may lack the resources alone to effect change in a broken world, your giving is vital for the UMC to continue its global ministries of reconciliation. Because of the Peace with Justice Sunday offering, the people of The United Methodist Church are able to make a difference together by sowing seeds—and yielding the fruit of peace. You can read more on the Peace With Justice website.

Peace with Justice Sunday can be celebrated on May 27 or any other Sunday that works for your church. You may use this Peace with Justice Liturgy or any other you prefer. You may also use this bulletin insert.  We have created two videos with music, one two minutes, one three minutes of Voices of the New York Board of Church & Society. We hope you will find them helpful in promoting Peace with Justice Sunday and integrating one of them into part of your message that day.
