Friday, June 19 - Saturday, June 27
We are witnessing a global moment of unprecedented loss, suffering, and also possibility; nothing is or will be left unchanged. That includes the Presbyterian General Assembly this June.
Even though GA will be virtual and pared down to only the business that is “critical” for the church’s institutional maintenance (budgets, elections), we know that the true calling of the Church remains the same: to be peacemakers and preach the Gospel by practicing justice in our families, communities, and world. That’s why we are hosting this Presbyterian Peace Camp: A Virtual Week of Learning, Prayer, and Action June 19-27.
All Presbyterians–commissioners to the 224th GA, those who are curious about the work of the PC(USA) for peace & justice, and those who have been involved in social movements in the PC(USA) for a long time–are invited as we delve into some of the most pressing issues of our world that were scheduled to be discussed at GA.
You are invited to participate in teach-ins and learn ways forward together through actions we can take in our own communities, mourn the loss the pandemic has wrought on our world and imagine the new world breaking in through vigils, practice joy and care as we connect with each other even from a distance, and imagine the world we are trying to create together through daily devotionals.
