Taken from the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program website:
Transforming Cultures of Violence into Communities of Peace
The Presbyterian Peacemaking Program, a mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and a program of Compassion, Peace and Justice Ministries, in urgent response to the overwhelming culture of violence in our world is:
Transforming cultures of violence into communities of peace.
Responding with the community to…
- Inspire new approaches to active peacemaking.
- Equip God’s people to be compassionate and prophetic peacemakers.
- Connect communities of peace to learn from each other in shared accompaniment and take action together for the transformation of the world.
The Session of Western Boulevard Presbyterian Church affirmed the church’s Commitment to Peacemaking on July 14, 2013.
