SUSQUEHANNA CONFERENCE UN SEMINAR TO DISCUSS VIOLENCE, TERROR, AND PEACE
How should we as followers of Jesus - and United Methodists - respond to the violence we are experiencing in our communities and around the world?
What are the things that lead to peace?
An uncomfortable truth about our world is that we are surrounded by violence. Violence begets fear, and fear begets violence. Jesus famously cried over the city of Jerusalem, saying, "If only you knew on this day of all days the things that lead to peace," (Luke 19:42, CEB).
Join other sisters and brothers from the Susquehanna Conference and the United Methodist Seminar Program for three days in New York City as we learn about the connections between global and local violence - and how we can be vessels of God's peace in our communities.
See the flyer and registration form - CLICK HERE - about the October 11-13, 2016, UN Seminar trip sponsored by the Mission and Outreach Team of Susquehanna Conference. Cost of the trip is $250 and includes bus travel to New York City, lodging at Seafarers Hotel, and the seminar.
The seminar trip is limited to 20 participants - register now.
Deadline is September 9.
