Peace is not just a reaction to conflict and war. Peace is the heart of the Gospel, and the heart of who we are as Presbyterians. Join us as we explore themes of peace and reconciliation, and our call to be peacemakers, in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Book of Confessions.
The Peacemaking Committee is delighted to share this resource with you and your faith community. It is our hope that this video and its accompanying discussion guide help you:
- More deeply engage with the PC(USA) Book of Confessions, and the call to peacemaking woven through each confession.
- Intersect Presbyterian and Reformed theology with an ethic of peacemaking and reconciliation.
- Critically engage with issues of peace and reconciliation in your own communities, our nation and our world.
- Explore new and courageous ways to be a person of peace as a follower of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.
You may play the video as a whole to see the scope of peacemaking in all of our confessions, or do a more in-depth study of a few confessions at a time, pausing to discuss and engage with each one. Whether you use this video for small group study, for home reflection, as a powerful tool in worship, or listen to its peaceful call in your car, we pray that it is a blessing and call to action for you and your community.
Don’t miss the discussion guide.
May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
The Peacemaking Committee of the Presbytery of Coastal Carolina
