A special Sunday authorized by the General Conference to be observed with an offering to be taken up throughout the denomination on the second Sunday after Pentecost. The focus of the observance is on a witness to God's demand for a faithful, just, disarmed and secure world. Of the monies received, one half remains in the Annual Conference for Peace with Justice projects. The other half goes to the General Board of Church and Society for its program of Peace with Justice ministries. The General Board of Church and Society is responsible for the general supervision of the observance of this special Sunday.
