Stand in Solidarity: Pray for Peace Today

The United Nations has declared today, September 21, the International Day of Peace, and the World Council of Churches has declared today the International Day of Prayer for Peace.

We invite you to stand in solidarity with those around the world, and those here at home, who are victims of violence and unrest. Please: reflect, discuss, act, and pray for peace.

Here are some prayers:

May we have the courage to respond to Christ’s radical call to be people of peace.

Peace be with you,
