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.
