Peace Colloquy

I am really looking forward to this year's Peace Colloquy at our church headquarters in Independence, Missouri in October. It is on the subject of Signal Communities this year. After all, that's what we are supposed to be about, isn't it? Building communities of love, hope, peace and joy?

Our little congregation has a "Living the Questions" small group meeting twice a month in the homes. This small group is different though. It is comprised of four Methodists, two Presbyterians, three Community of Christ, one Church of Christ and one agnostic. Of these, three have attended our Peace Colloquy in the past and this year once again three Presbyterians and one Methodist will be attending with us. In fact, they are returning early from a trip to Hawaii just to take in the Peace Colloquy.

The last one the Presbyterians attended was on Peace and Justice through adjudication. The man is a lawyer/judge and he and his wife and sister-in-law attended that one with us..
