Peace Day 2019: Making the case for peace

By Jen Houser

On Earth Peace announces its 13th annual campaign to promote Peace Day, the International Day of Peace, on Sept. 21, 2019. The theme for Peace Day 2019 is “The Case for Peace.” This year’s campaign helps participants build the case for peace from a Christian perspective.

Peace is essential for those who follow Jesus–but where does that peace commitment come from, and what does it look like? Through the months of the campaign, On Earth Peace will offer resources, webinars, and online meet-ups to help people connect and deepen their understanding of peace as a part of Christian faith.

For Sept. 21 itself, On Earth Peace will offer various actions for people of all ages to participate in across the United States and around the world including children’s activities, study resources, and opportunities to gather with your local community.
