Today is the first day of the media violence fast. Today we celebrate the UCC's 30 year commitment to a Just Peace. Next Sunday is the first Just Peace Sunday in the UCC.
Just Peacemaking expresses our commitment to engage practices to resolve conflict at every level - in ourselves, in our families, in our communities, and in our world - without violence whenever possible. As we abstain from violent media, consider the importance of resolving conflict without violence, viewing this video demonstrating why the UCC started and continues the Just Peace movement.
As you reflect, share your thoughts on UCC OC Inc.'s Facebook page and on Twitter using the hashtag #UCCMediaFast.
Fasting in peace and solidarity,
UCC's media justice ministry, OC Inc.
