Peace with Justice Sunday:
   
  Through the Peace with Justice offering, the good news is proclaimed to and experienced by those longing for Gad’s shalom.
  The Peace with Justice Sunday offering on the First Sunday after Pentecost benefits peace with justice ministries in the annual conference and through the General Board of Church and Society.
  Although you, and possibly your congregation, may lack the resources alone to effect change in a broken world, your giving is vital to help The United Methodist Church continue the global ministries of reconciliation.
  Here are some examples:
  1. Spearheading a peace ministry uniting Arizona border communities.
  2. Equipping United Methodists in Liberia to implement the Social Principles to address social justice issues.
  3. Empowering Pennsylvania students to educate their community about sex trafficking at home and abroad.
  In Jesus’ first address to his home synagogue in Nazareth, he made his intentions clear. “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor” (Luke 4:18-19).
  Through the Peace with Justice offering, the good news is proclaimed to and experienced by those longing for God’s shalom.
