As an organization, we are committed to empowering grassroots activists for peace around the world to do amazing work. One of the ways we do that is through hosting this listing of resources. You may also find inspiration from our blog posts by various peacemakers and the peace communities around the U.S. that we support. We also host a calendar of upcoming events of interest that you can see at the bottom of any page as well as a biweekly e-newsletter with news, articles, and analysis for those interested in peacemaking from a Presbyterian perspective.
Each resource is sorted in two ways: the category of the subject and the type of resource. Types include curricula, sermons, books, and articles. Subjects range from Gun Violence to General Assembly to Immigration. Browse all resources here.
SPOTLIGHT: "Can We Be Peacemakers for Palestine?"
In June 2015 we released "Can We Be Peacemakers For Palestine?", an educational program developed by the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship for religious, community and other groups interested in justice for Palestinians. The program consists of three sessions of about two hours each. The sessions could be scheduled over three separate days or all three on one day.
The first session provides the peacemaking foundation for the program. The second session describes the military occupation of Palestine and how it impacts the daily lives of Palestinian men, women and children. It includes how United States policy enables the military occupation. The third session is an opportunity for participants to utilize what they have learned to develop responses.
The writing team strived to make the program accessible, soul stirring, and motivating. The program's Facilitator's Guide is a step-by-step guide for a local facilitator. The program includes all of the required materials plus suggestions for supplemental books, movies, videos and blogs.
