“Community mediation centers are a great way for neighbors to resolve disputes. Rather than resorting to conflict, violence or the courts, people bring their issues to a volunteer mediator.”

—THE REV. EUGENE BRUNDIGE, Volunteer, Greater Hilltop Shalom Zone, Columbus, Ohio


your GIFT EMPOWERS PEACEMAKERS


Thanks to a 2012 Peace with Justice grant from the General Board of Church and Society, the Greater Hilltop Shalom Zone is changing the culture of conflict and gang violence.

After a teenager named Luke was convicted of armed robbery, he was released from juvenile detention into the custody of the Rev. Eugene Brundige. A volunteer with the Greater Hilltop Shalom Zone, Brun­dige arranged a meeting between Luke and the store’s owner.

Luke apologized and agreed to pay restitution of $5 per week until the owner’s loss was made whole. A few months later, the owner de­cided to hire Luke.


REAL CHANGE FOR REAL LIFE

Eight United Methodist congregations unite with social service, educational and law-enforcement agencies in the Columbus Sha­lom Zone where trained mediators handle a variety of disputes that often involve juveniles like Luke who have had their first brush with the law.


YOUR GIFT PROMOTES PEACE.

Your donation empowers peacemakers to mediate disputes and pro­mote cooperation through the love of Christ. The Peace with Justice Sunday offering helps youth like Luke get a second chance before it’s too late. Thank you for your generous gift today.


United Methodists relate to this special Sunday by seeking peaceful solutions, creating and supporting peace-related ministries in their conference and learning about peaceful, just efforts around the world.

Please give generously on Peace with Justice Sunday.
