>> Add this event to your Google Calendar

Join us for On Earth Peace's next community meetup on September 17th from 3-4:30pm EST. These meetups, initiated as the pandemic arose in early 2020, are relational gatherings with a theme. In each meeting, we welcome new and returning friends and seek to build community, conviction, and capacity. These sessions are not "webinars" - they provide a time for relationship and conversation, with focused content that we engage together. 

The theme of this meeting is focused around the book The Highest of All Mountains: A Guide for Christians Seeking Peace and Becoming Peacemakers by Samuel Sarpiya. This book is for people who believe that the gospel is a message of peace and this gospel of peace is relevant for our time. Peacemaking is a core part of our Christian discipleship just as we learn how to pray, just as we learn how to love our neighbors, just as we learn how to feed the hungry. We can also learn how to be peacemakers. This book will serve as a guide that will offer a scriptural guide with practical stories and applications. Readers will be challenged by Scripture to take the call to peacemaking into their communities.
