Peace and justice activists from across the country are invited to gather at Stony Point Center (Stony Point, NY) for the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship's Convocation of Peacemakers to explore "The Art of Waging Peace" through plenary presentations, small group discussions, workshops, Open Space conversations, powerful preaching, and inspiring worship.
For generations the words of Dr. Martin Luther King have continued to ring true that Sunday morning remains the most segregated time in the American week. Our churches are not just segregated by the faces of those sitting in our pews week in and week out, but also by the ways we continue to uphold systemic injustice in every facet of our culture. For this reason, among others, the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship was dismayed to see the One Great Hour of Sharing promotional materials put forth by our denomination.
When I was treasurer of PPF during the ‘70’s and ‘80’s we had a shoestring budget and a narrow focus of support for a narrow Peace agenda. I’m pleased and excited to be a continuing part of a Peace Fellowship today that is pressing forward for a more comprehensive vision of Peace and Justice today. I’m glad to work alongside the emerging leadership of our organization as they motivate us to even more participation in the agenda for a Just and Peaceful future.
