Calls for Peace Most-Read November Stories

CHICAGO, IL (December 4, 2014) – The two most-read Covenant News Service stories in November focused on calls for peace and reconciliation in very different parts of the world. In response to the decision by a Ferguson, Missouri, grand jury to not indict Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, President Gary Walter wrote, “As a Covenant we will persist in obedience to Christ in the important matter of racial righteousness towards a more caring and just world.”

In Jerusalem, Covenant minister Andy Larsen was caught up amid violence while filming a documentary about peacemakers in the region. Larsen said, “There’s a lot of decent humanity on the street in Jerusalem. We hope to show this in our documentary. I was sobered by many of the stories but simultaneously heartened as I watched people struggle to pursue peace despite the violence and horrible injustices.”
