What is just peace?
Just Peace is a recognized designation for activities which are intentional and purposeful to alleviate inequities and injustices which may lead to violence. A Just Peace congregation recognizes there can be no true peace without justice for all, including Just Peace in the Community – so that all may live free from fear.
A Plymouth committee was formed to study how the Just Peace pronouncement would affect Plymouth and to recommend (or not) to Plymouth’s Church Council that Plymouth be designated a Just Peace Church. As a Just Peace Church, Plymouth would seek justice and peace in every sphere of life. The committee presented the proposal to the Church Council in September 2017, and it was approved unanimously at the October 2017 Church Council meeting. Plymouth is proud to be a Just Peace church!
