Peace & Justice / Creation Care

The Peace and Justice Committee of Adult Christian Education seeks to discern ways to be obedient to God’s call to be peacemakers. We believe God wills shalom – justice, wholeness, well-being, fulfillment, health, harmony –for all of God’s very good Creation. Therefore, we provide education for the congregation and advocate possible paths to restore the environment, to end hunger and poverty, to promote peace in the Middle East and elsewhere, to prevent violence in all its forms and to bring to light other concerns that need the healing of the One we name the Prince of Peace.

SPECIAL Classes - April 23 to May 14

The Peace and Justice Committee is sponsoring a series focusing on sustainability called "Stewardship of God's Earth" from April 23 - May 14. Come learn about what sustainability means, the responsibility we have as Christian's to protect and nourish what God has bestowed upon us, and what some local groups in our area are doing to nurture the Earth through their agricultural practices.

Dr. Nate Stuckey, Farminary at Princeton Seminary—April 23. This Project integrates theological education with smallscale sustainable agriculture in the conviction that the skills and character vital to faithful Christian leadership must be formed in direct relationship with God’s good creation.

John and Peter Crooke, Sustainable Agriculture—April 30. John and Peter will be talking about their work running a CSA and a farm program for teens at the Lawrenceville School, respectively.

Cathy Snyder, Rolling Harvest—May 7.  Learn how this local nonprofit has created a network of volunteers, organic farmers and food pantries to make sure community produce does not go to waste by utilizing the biblical concept of gleaning and that those who are food-insecure have access to healthy, fresh food raised with sustainable farming practices.

Laurie Foote, Equal Exchange—May 14. Many may recognize this organization, which sells fair trade coffee, chocolate, tea, and other goods. DPC member and Equal Exchange representative Laurie Foote will tell us more about the company, their cooperative approach to sustainable agriculture and efforts to be good stewards to our Earth.
