‘Peace, peace,’ they say,
when there is no peace.

Blog post about: Worship at Mt. Peace Baptist Church (7/31)

A good friend recently shared with me a link to a 5-part webinar series that speaks to racial reconciliation within the church. In one of the episodes, the presenter alluded to an oft-quoted verse from Jeremiah the prophet, and used it as a commentary on race-relations here in our country.

 They dress the wound of my people
as though it were not serious.
‘Peace, peace,’ they say,
when there is no peace.

Oh how Jeremiah’s words ring true! While we cannot yet speak ‘peace, peace’ we can certainly continue working toward it!!

Join us this Sunday, 10am at Mt. Peace Baptist Church as our two congregations join forces once more, and have the privilege to hear Dr. J Kameron Carter (Duke Divinity School) speak and move us toward peace and unity!

Moms and Dads, for worship at Mt Peace, we’re giving out Kids Activity Packs complete with snacks and crayons. I’ll bet it will take some time to “spot all 12 differences” and solve the maze!
