A Moment for Mission – Peace with Justice Sunday, May 22, 2016
“And hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.” – Romans 5:5, NRSV
Peace with Justice Sunday, one of United Methodism’s six Special Sundays. Our gifts support ministries that promote peace and advocate justice. We support peace and justice because true and lasting peace cannot exist in the presence of injustice.
The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote in his Letter from Birmingham Jail, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.”
Our giving today supports work in local congregations, annual conferences and around the world to bring peace and justice to people in need of hope. Our giving goes toward effecting change that could change the world.
