Fear not: Seek peace in our world
Learn | Pray | Give | Advocate for change
The war horse is a vain hope for victory, and by its great might it cannot save. Our soul waits for the LORD, who is our help and shield. – Psalm 33:17, 20
The United States is the world’s military superpower. With U.S. military bases in more than 150 countries, the U.S. spends more on its military than nearly all other nations of the world combined. Ironically, we still live in fear.
U.S. militarism is felt in many ways: military aid that fuels the civil war in Colombia; the militarized border with Mexico; thousands of troops present in Afghanistan; and needs that go unmet in U.S. communities while the military enjoys increased funding.
As noted by the Psalmist, military strength is a vain hope for security. Join us as we explore ways to build a worldwide community that is peaceful and secure, recognizing that in our weakness, God's true strength is revealed (2 Corinthians 12:9-10).
