Recommended Congregational Actions for Peace - September 20-21, 2014

This week we continue our recommendations for Metropolitan Chicago Synod congregations.

PRAY - As we see a reduction in the violence in Gaza, let us turn to the question: will we remember to keep working for peace even when the conflict is NOT in the headlines? (Why do we forget so soon?)

LEARN - Many congregations are planning Adult Education activities for 2014-15. Please consider using one of the excellent resources about Israel / Palestine, described on the WGME website: bit.ly/WGMEAdultEd

ACT - Help support the participation of a young person from MCS in the Metro Chicago Young Adult Holy Land Trip 2015. (See bit.ly/HolyLand2015 ). Your support of this program can help plant the seeds for a peaceful future!
