A Prayer for the Bombed Out
Full text: "Lord God, we pray for all the bombed out, burned out, driven out, relocated, wondering, wandering, unwilling pilgrims in this world. Forgive us our part in uprooting them. Restore their lives; make us partners with them in the rebuilding of their lives. We pray in the name of the Son of Man, who had no place to lay His head. Amen." (Arnold Kenseth & Richard Unsworth in Prayers for Worship Leaders) Full color print on assorted colors.
 
Bless To Us Our Bread
The text is an Argentinian prayer: "God bless to us our bread, and give bread to those who are hungry, and hunger for justice to all those who are fed." Printed in full color, four assorted illustrations.
 
I Have Been Fed
Full text: "I have been fed from fields I did not till. I have crossed bridges I did not build. I have sat in the shade of trees I did not plant. I have received knowledge I did not research." (Henlee Hulix Barnette)
 
It Helps, Now and Then
Full text: "It helps, now and then, to step back and take the long view." From the writing of former Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero, a reminder that our work is a part of the greater whole. Printed in color on two sides.
 
Martin Luther King Jr Series
Four thought-provoking quotes from Dr. King's writings are included in this assortment. Printed in color.
 
Peace, Like War, is Waged
Full text: "Peace plans its strategy and encircles the enemy. Peace, like war, is waged. Peace marshals its forces and storms the gates. Peace, like war, is waged. Peace gathers its weapons and pierces the defense. Peace, like war, is waged. But Christ has turned it all around: the weapons of peace are love, joy, goodness, longsuffering; the arms of peace are justice, truth, patience, prayer; the strategy of peace brings safety, welfare, happiness; the forces of peace are the sons and daughters of God." (An inspiring quote from Walker Knight.)
 
Sabbath Admonition for Peacemakers
Full text: "Whatever is foreseen in joy / Must be lived out from day to day. / Vision held open in the dark / By our ten thousand days of work. / Harvest will fill the barn; for that / The hand must ache, / the face must sweat. / And yet no leaf or grain is filled / By work of ours; the field is tilled / And left to grace. / That we may reap, / Great work is done / while we're asleep. / When we work well, / a Sabbath mood / Rests on our day and finds it good." (a poem by Wendell Berry)
 
The Bible Speaks About Peace
Subtitled "12 Things Every Christian Should Know," this bookmark demonstrates 12 specific things the Bible has to say about peace. Each statement includes supporting scripture references. Printed in full color on two sides. 
 
The Work of Christmas
Full text: "When the song of the angel is still, When the star in the sky is gone, When the Kings and princes are home, When the shepherds are back with their sheep, The work of Christmas begins: to find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the prisoner, to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among people, to make music in the heart." (a poem by Howard Thurman)
 
The Work of Easter
Full text: "When the voice of the Easter angel is stilled, When the soldiers guarding the tomb are gone, When the women have returned to their homes, When the fishers are at their nets again, The work of Easter begins: To bear the light, To sing the joy, To speak the hope, To liberate the trapped, To proclaim the peace, To let Love transform, To turn words into flesh again." (based on The Work of Christmas by Howard Thurman)
 
The World is Waiting
Features a quote from Henri Nouwen, "The world is waiting for new saints, ... new order that is being born out of the ruin of the old."
 
True Evangelical Faith Cannot Lie Dormant
Full text: "True evangelical faith cannot lie dormant. It clothes the naked, it feeds the hungry, it comforts the sorrowful, it shelters the destitute, it serves those that harm it, it binds up that which is wounded. It has become all things to all." (quote from Menno Simons)
 
We Strive Following Jesus: BPFNA Theological Statement
Full text: "We strive, following Jesus, to: listen with openness, speak with conviction, resist evil, receive hostility and return love, break silences which harm, resist cooperation with structures that cause hardship and suffering, practice healing, mend creation’s wounds, offer hospitality to the refugee and the sojourner, insist on human rights, love friend & stranger, ally & enemy, to point with our words, attitudes and actions to the acceptable year of God."
 
Why Then Do We Sing?
A poem by Mario Benedetti, in Spanish with English translation on the reverse; dedicated to the people of Cuba.

Peace Primer: Quotes from Jewish, Christian, Islamic Scripture & Tradition (2012)

$0

By Lynn Gottlieb, Rabia Terri Harris, Ken Sehested; 77 pages


It is common today to hear the claim that we are engaged in "a clash of cultures." The first step in addressing conflict is for all parties to listen to each other. That is the goal of this publication: to allow Christians, Muslims and Jews to listen to each other's scripture and tradition, particularly to hear what each has to say about seeking justice, pursuing peace and working for reconciliation.
