Our minds are often anxious and fearful in times of uncertainty and change.
Our homes and churches can be places of tension instead of refuges of harmony.
Our world is burdened with ill health, economic hardship and deep political divisions.

But, through Christ Jesus, the God of peace is making a people of peace.

Jesus, the man of peace, brought peace to broken people and gave His life to reconcile us to the Father – we have peace with God through Him (Romans 5:1)

Jesus, the risen Lord guards our hearts and minds (Philippians 4:7) in the peace of God and in Him the bond of peace holds our churches together in unity (Ephesians 4:3)

In the name of Jesus, the head of the Church, we go into our communities and the wider world as peacemakers to sow peace and reap a harvest of righteousness (James 3:18).

Our prayer for New Horizon 2021 is that we might become people who seek, know and make peace.

We want to grow in biblical understanding of the fullness of God’s peace.

We want to know and experience God’s peace in our hearts, our families and our churches.

We want to go together as peacemakers to sow peace in our workplaces, our communities and our world.

May the God of peace, through the gospel of peace, make us people of peace.
