Peace Sunday 2022
September 18, 2022
The UN General Assembly set 21 September as the permanent date for the International Day of Peace in 1981.
The resolution states that observing the International Day of Peace “strengthen[s] the ideals of peace and alleviat[es] tensions and causes of conflict.” It declares “…a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the Day.”
The theme for this year’s Peace Sunday is: “Being a new creation in the midst of external turmoil.”
We know that we need this now more than ever before!
You and your congregation are invited to observe Peace Sunday together with brothers and sisters in the global Anabaptist church family on September 18, 2022.
