A Sermon by Rev. Rob Martin...Download
As we have witnessed so tragically, violence and terror are not limited to foreign shores. With the proliferation of assault weapons in private homes and national arsenals, we are all at risk of being the victims of violence. Have you ever wondered what should be our response as Christians to the challenges of violence, terror, and war? How have your experiences with violence and/or war affected you, your faith, and your views of peacemaking? How do we respond to the example of Jesus and the nonviolent church of the first three centuries? Is just war possible in an age of modern warfare? These are a few of the questions we would like to explore with you in a process of Peace Discernment.
The Social Justice Ministry Committee will be offering this discernment process through the Sunday morning Adult Study over four Sundays: April 21– May 12. We invite you to join with us on this adventure, to help us explore hard choices, to hear many voices, to discern God’s calling for us as Presbyterian peacemakers in the 21st century.
Please note: Our Children’s Educational program will be running concurrently with Adult Education this year—so if you have children please plan on attending!
