Peace with Justice Sunday - Overview
your GIFT TODAY . . . Helps Spread The Gospel of Peace and Encourage Cooperation.
“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.”
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.
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 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.
