Our church cares about issues related to peacemaking and strives to serve as an advocate for peace in the family, the community, and the wider world. We offer educational programs examining critical issues and provide the information you need to take direct action and make an impact.
Reconcilliation Work. Sunday, February 3, 11:15 am., Bill Jacobsen will speak about his reconciliation work in Rwanda and Burundi.
During the past year we have sponsored a variety of programs:
- How to Talk About Hot Topics Without Arguing: a skill-building workshop on how to discuss difficult issues while maintaining relationships.
- Broad Street Immersion Day and Mission Summit: an opportunity to serve lunch to the guests of Broad Street Ministries and a wrap-up review of how we can use what we learned to shape mission at Bryn Mawr.
- Justice and Gerrymandering: an informative panel presentation on the effects of gerrymandering on the peoples’ voting power.
- Main Line Gun Violence Awareness Day: Bryn Mawr led an interfaith group of 19 congregations in education, prayer and advocacy around the effects of gun violence on our community. Over 150 people came to worship, walk and witness.
