Prayers for Peacemakers, March 20, 2013

Lord, renew among your war-weary people the gifts of
lamentation in the face of wrong, sharing in suffering, partnering with
all who stand in and for peace and good, and offering oneself to protect from
harm anyone branded as “enemy”.

Septermber Supper Fundraiser

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
