Pray for peace Sept. 21
The ELCA, as part of the World Council of Churches, invites members to join in observing the International Day of Prayer for Peace on Sept. 21.
With the Pacific region the focus, Christians are asked “to accept the challenge of overcoming violence all around us while relying on God’s promise and power, so we may witness to peace and justice.”

We too often think of peace in worldly terms, ie Iraq, Israel,Georgia, and other hostile areas and countries. Peace needs to begin from within-inner peace- peace with your partner, peace with family and friends, peace in the neighborhood, peace in our schools, peace in the towns and cities. Certainly world peace is so very important, but it makes us forget and neglect peace closer to home.
