Susquehanna Conference UN Seminar to Discuss Violence, Terror, and Peace 

This is an exciting seminar trip to the Church Center of the United Nations in NYC in February 2018.  

How should we as followers of Jesus--and United Methodists--respond to the violence we are experiencing in our communities and around the world?

 What are the things that lead to peace? 

An uncomfortable truth about our world is that we are surrounded by violence. Violence begets fear, and fear begets violence. Jesus famously cried over the city of Jerusalem, saying, "If only you knew on this day of all days the things that lead to peace" (Luke 19:42, CEB). 

Join other sisters and brothers from the Susquehanna Conference and the United Methodist Seminar Program for 3 days in New York City as we learn about the connections between global and local violence—and how we can be vessels of God’s peace in our communities.

See the attached flyer about the February 4-7, 2018 UN Seminar Trip sponsored by the Mission and Outreach Team of Susquehanna Conference. 

Cost of the trip is $395 and includes seminar, bus transportation, and lodging at Edison Hotel in Times Square.  

The Seminar Trip is limited to 20 participants - Register Now!  Deadline is November 1, 2017.
