Peace Sunday 2019

MCC invites congregations to observe Peace Sunday on November 10, 2019 – close to Remembrance Day – or another appropriate Sunday.

Peace Sunday is an occasion to preach, teach, reflect upon and witness to the gospel of peace as revealed in Jesus Christ. This year’s Peace Sunday packet, Come and Eat focuses on the theme of peacemaking through food justice. This packet is intended to help you and your congregation plan a Peace Sunday worship service, as well as related educational, advocacy and peace witness activities.

Come and Eat: Peacemaking through food justice

We eat. We grow food. We are invited to the dinner table. We are called to be peacemakers. How do our choices contribute to peace and justice for our sisters and brothers, and for the earth itself?

This year, your congregation’s journey toward Peace Sunday will involve many challenging questions about the connection between food and Christian peacemaking. You will have the opportunity to:

•    develop a spirituality of eating
•    explore food security as part of God’s vision of security for all creation
•    recognize farmers as peacemakers
•    promote justice through gardening
•    make faithful choices at the grocery store

Welcome to this feast of worship and discipleship where we are called to be peacemakers through our daily bread.
