White pole that says "May peace prevail on Earth"

International Day of Peace 2022

The International Day of Peace is observed annually on September 21. This year’s theme is “End racism. Build peace.”

The United Nations website says: “The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. But achieving true peace entails much more than laying down arms. It requires the building of societies where all members feel that they can flourish. It involves creating a world in which people are treated equally, regardless of their race.”

Please join us in praying for and working toward a world free from racism and racial discrimination.
