Disciples of Christ Working and Praying for Peace

Last night with the Burmese reminded me how much we need to pray for peace. I know they are facing the consequences of a natural disaster. However, the junta is preventing the world from helping on a scale that could begin to relieve suffering. The growing animosity is already leading to people talking about the “next war” in Burma. We need to pray for peace.

The Disciples of Christ Church also joins in prayers for peace and social justice. Disciples Home Missions clearly states its goals: demilitarization, abolishing the death penalty, responsible investments. The Disciples Justice Action Network is a treasure or related resources, it is the tools in the tool box for working for social justice.

However, even if you have a plan and the resources, to do the work and to do it consistently you need support. The Disciples Peace Fellowship provides that support.

So as we prepare for the last day of this week of praying for peace let us join our Disciples of Christ brother and sisters in praying for peace.
