Tuesdays, 7:00 am, Eucharist for Peace & Justice: Peace is a word of vast definition, but it can rarely be seen as a state or concept that we just “let happen.” A reading of more than ten translations of the Beatitudes, found in the fifth chapter of the Gospel according to Matthew, reveals a consistent use of the word “peacemakers.” We are called to be makers and maintainers of peace. For our peacemaking to be intentional we must be fed and fortified, informed, supported and challenged; we must be praying and prayed-for people.
Gathering at 7:00 am every Tuesday for Eucharist with a special focus on peace and justice helps us to be peacemakers. The service is held in the Justice and Peace Chapel, and we linger afterwards for a light breakfast in the Upper Parish House, sharing concerns and opportunities during lively conversation. Come join us. Together let us wage peace.
