Just Peace is one way of describing the holistic scope of God’s mission in the world, as encompassing peace in the marketplace, peace in communities, peace between peoples, and peace with the earth.
What is Just Peace?
In all realms of peacemaking, there is no peace without justice, and no justice without peace – they are inseparable. The fullness of this framework can be read at the World Council of Churches Just Peace. Just Peace concerns are fundamental to our understanding of what it means to be a Christian church. We embrace a tradition of active peacemaking and advocacy for people who are marginalized. We have a Just Peace Council which specifically discerns the congregation’s responsibilities in the realm of justice and peace and Just Peace. Historically our Community Ministry program has been central to our efforts to think globally and act locally. Currently we have many local, regional, national, international and global giving partners.
