965: Peace Prayer of Saint Francis and Announcements

Day 965: Sunday, November 6, 2022

Peace Prayer of Saint Francis and Announcements

In this time of so much news and so much anxiety, I think it's important to meditate for a few moments in prayer and breathing. This is a prayer I use each day and it helps me remember what is most important.

The Peace Prayer of St. Francis

Make me an instrument of peace:

where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Spirit, grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console,

to be understood as to understand,

to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

ANNOUNCEMENT: “Endure for the Promise”

You are invited to the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Israel/Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (USA)

After only convening virtually for the past two annual meetings, we are excited to offer a hybrid format for the 2022 IPMN Annual Meeting! General Assembly has once again proved critical in the work of advancing human rights and justice in Palestine/Israel with the PCUSA overwhelmingly voting in support of overtures related to apartheid, ending the siege in Gaza, and designating within our denomination May 15 as Nakba Remembrance Day.

As we celebrate the victories at the General Assembly, we know there is still much work in front of us. During our time together we will reflect on what IPMN is called to do at this moment. Your voice and ideas are needed as we discern where we go as a Mission Network. We hope you will be able to join us in person in San Anselmo, CA or via Zoom this November 10-12 as we consider what it means for IPMN to "endure for the promise" as we continue to lift up the calls for justice and equality coming from our siblings in Palestine.

We hope you will all make it a priority to join us in person for this year's IPMN Annual Meeting.

When: Thursday, November 10 (11AM Pacific registration, 2PM Pacific start) to Saturday, November 12, 2022 (Noon Pacific close)

Where: First Presbyterian Church, 72 Kensington Road, San Anselmo, CA 94960 (near Oakland & San Francisco)

Options for attending, with costs:

  1. Full Conference (in person) at SFTS/Redlands University and First Presbyterian San Anselmo ($250).
