Most United Methodist annual conferences have a Peace with Justice Sunday coordinator?
Most United Methodist Annual Conferences have a Peace With Justice Coordinator. The General Board of Church and Society is committed to building relationships with each of these conference boards by providing educational resources, building and sustaining relationships, and helping mobilize networks to engage in social advocacy and action. We encourage United Methodists to build a Peace with Justice ministry in your conference by connecting with your Peace With Justice Coordinator.
ABOUT PEACE WITH JUSTICE SUNDAY (PWJS)
Peace with Justice is a faithful expression of shalom in the Bible. It calls the church to strengthen its capacity to advocate publicly in communities and nations throughout the world. It aims to make shalom visible and active in people's lives and communities by setting people free from bondage. We will celebrate Peace with Justice as witnesses to God's demand for a faithful, just, disarmed and secure world. Generally, Peace with Justice Sunday is celebrated on the second Sunday after Pentecost and a special offering is collected. The offering is administered by the General Board of Church and Society and benefits peace with justice ministries in the Annual Conferences and around the world.
