This Peace Sunday we will centre our worship on the theme of “Defending Hope.” In a world of violence and oppression, living into hope is a faithful, courageous witness. Defense is usually associated with a nation or individual’s self-protection at the expense of another. But to defend hope is to offer life to all.

We will hear from people in Colombia and Ethiopia who have demonstrated with their lives, the radical nonviolent hope filled life centered on Christ. Their hope is strong and audacious as it confronts the daily challenges of armed violence, uncertainty, and suspicion. We will be invited to defend hope amid a wealthy lifestyle; defend hope in the midst of changing and uncertain times. We will be reminded that ‘nothing can separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord.’ (Romans 8.39)
