2012 Peace Sunday:
Agreeing and Disagreeing in Love
Peace Sunday comes this year in the midst of a national election season. Deciding
how to participate, or to participate at all, in the political process can be a spiritual
exercise when pursued through prayer and in discerning communities of faith. The
result of that exercise will lead followers of Jesus to different conclusions. These
differences need not lead to division in the body of Christ. With our ultimate allegiance
to Jesus, the church at every level can continue engaging in God’s mission
of peace and reconciliation, even as we differ in how, or if, we vote.
This year, the Peace and Justice Support Network invites your community to consider “agreeing and disagreeing in love” together as a Jesus-centered response to a political process that too often seeks victory by creating and exploiting division. The church’s faithful witness to Jesus will not be announced by voting for a particular candidate. Instead, it will be announced as we model together how to love one another even in the midst of difference.
