Carl HortonLike everyone, the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program has been in a season of shift. It reminds me of the difference between driving an automatic and manual transmission automobile. They both get you where you’re going, but the shift makes a difference. Going "manual" takes a bit more attention, focus and finesse, and it can be a herky-jerky ride. Since March, we’ve shifted the way we do our peacemaking work and it’s been a bit of a ride. We’ve gone online, like everything else, and it’s caused us to be more creative, do more digitally and to focus on our resources. We’ve also taken time to reexamine and provide new resources for the historic Presbyterian Commitment to Peacemaking.

And while we’ve been moving the Peacemaking Program onto virtual platforms, at least for the time being, the work of justice has moved into the public square and been very real indeed. Demonstrations here in Louisville and in countless other cities make it clear that there can be no peace without justice. We invite you to join us, peacemakers, in the justice work that has been placed before us, for it is the clearest path forward to peace.

Carl Horton, Coordinator Presbyterian Peacemaking Program
