The International Day of Peace 2011 and The International Day of Prayer for Peace, are observed widely on Sept. 21 in congregations and at the ELCA Center in Chicago. the UN has chosen the theme of "Make Your Voice Heard," under the overall idea of peace and democracy.
LPF and the ELCA offer a variety of peace prayers and other resources that can be used throughout the year. We have a bulletin insert, and other resources and activities below to make this a meaningful and useful experience for all.
