The International Day of Peace 2010 and The International Day of Prayer for Peace, are observed widely on Sept. 21 in congregations and at the ELCA Center in Chicago. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has announced that this year’s Peace Day Theme is “Peace, Youth and Development” under the slogan “Peace = Future”.
LPF and the ELCA offer a variety of peace prayers and other resources that can be used throughout the year. We have suggestions, a bulletin insert, and other resources and activities below to make this a meaningful and useful experience for all. LPF’s director was one of six Lutheran peace leaders whose reflections on peace day were featured on the home page of the ELCA web site in 2009.
