Followers of the Prince of Peace are called to be peacemakers, promoting harmony and order and restoring what is broken.
We call on our governments to work for peace and to restore just relationships.
We deplore the spread of weapons in our world and on our streets with the risks they bring and the horrors they threaten.
We call on all nations to reduce their arsenals to what is needed in the defense of justice and freedom.
We pledge to walk in ways of peace, confessing that our world belongs to God; he is our sure defense.
