The church in the U.S. continues to face challenges over how to respond faithfully to the biblical call to “seek peace and pursue it” (Psalm 34:14). MCC U.S. peace education work nurtures a commitment to Christ’s way of peace among youth and adults, promotes critical self-reflection on how our faith leads us to build peace rather than join our nation’s pursuit of war and builds capacity for the biblical commitment to peace and non-violence at individual and systemic levels through:
Ask a veteran about faith, military service and peace.
A witness for peace with redirected war tax dollars
Learn about a call for a ban on the use, production and trade of cluster munitions.
