2009 Peace Conference at Lake Junaluska:
 September 20 - 22, 2009
Last year Pastor Grace and Tony attended with 15 other persons from the Burlington District, including District Superintendent Bill Gattis.  We plan to attend again in September and encourage YOU to consider joining us for a passion-filled, uplifting weekend in the North Carolina mountains.  This year’s theme is “Building Partnerships for Peace."

Ancient tradition teaches that Abraham, Hagar, and Sarah kept their tent open in all four directions of the world so that travelers who thirsted for water or hungered for food might be welcomed instantly and warmly, no matter the direction from which they came.”  The purpose of the Peace Conference states “Because there can be no peace without better understanding, respect, and cooperation among Earth’s faith communities, we seek a deeper dialogue among persons of the three Abrahamic faiths.  Through this dialogue we seek better ways to advocate for peace, security, and the dignity of all people.”

Please pick up a brochure from the Narthex table and see Pastor Grace or Tony for more information.
