The Southern and Northern Province Provincial Elders’ Conference have designated Sunday, May 18, 2014 as the Prayer Day for Star Mountain and Middle East Peace.
The Moravian work at Star Mountain began in 1867. At the Synod of 2006, our Province became a member of Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP).
A bulletin insert provides basic information about Star Mountain and the work of Churches for Middle East Peace. Congregations are invited to include this in worship bulletins in March. In April specific prayer concerns and additional resources for observing the Prayer Day will be provided.
The coming months are important ones as our country and others are giving increased attention to achieving a just and lasting peace for Israel and Palestine, and the need to support our sisters and brothers at Star Mountain is certainly ongoing.
