Peace with Justice Sunday at work in the Yellow Stone Annual Conference

"It isn‟t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn‟t enough to be-lieve in. One must work at it." Eleanor Roosevelt

Peace with Justice Sunday, created by the 1988 General Conference, is one of the six church-wide special Sundays. Peace with Justice Sunday is traditionally celebrated the first Sunday after Pentecost. This year‘s date is May 30. Congregations may select an alterna-tive date that works for them.

The special offering for Yellowstone Conference for 2009 was $6,342. Half of this amount went to the General Board to allow the United Methodist Church to have a voice in advocating for peace and justice in the United States and around the world. $3,171 re-mained in our conference to be administered by Guiding Values. A grant of $3,000 was given to High Plains Initiative on American Indian Studies for the purpose of providing scholarships to attend Gathering 2010 which will be held in Bismarck, ND.

"Blessed are the peacemak-ers for they shall be called the children of God" --Matthew 5:9 KJV
