October 25, 2015 Season of Peace Series Concludes with The Stories We Tell Ourselves, Part One*

Pulitzer Prize winning war correspondent and Presbyterian minister Chris Hedges reported in the New York Times in 2003 that in the preceding 3,400 years of recorded history (including the Biblical period), humans had been entirely at peace for just 268 years, just 8 percent of recorded history. The United States has been at war continuously since his report. For over 90% of our national history since 1776, our country has been engaged in war.  Why?
This Sunday, October 25, 2015 at 9:30 a.m., we’ll explore the stories we tell ourselves, and the stories we have been told from earliest childhood, which persuade us that violence is the solution to our problems and to world problems.  Now is the time to re-write these stories, with the God of Peace as our Author.  Find peace in your heart and bring peace to the world.  Be a part of this world-saving morning!
