German Zarate-Durier is director of the Office of Diaconia (Mission and Service) of
the Presbyterian Church of Colombia, which focuses on church
development and the promotion of human rights. He works with social
justice organizations, especially those devoted to victims of
violence, and with the Presbyterian Accompaniment Program for Peace.  He visited Atlanta during the first week of October, 2013.  

Arranged through the denominational offices of the Presbyterian Church
(U.S.A.) in Louisville, Kentucky, the International Peacemakers
Program has been in existence since prior to 1988. International
Peacemakers are leaders who are engaged in peacemaking in their own
areas of the world. They are invited by the Presbyterian Church
(U.S.A.) to visit with Presbyterians in the United States and to help
us understand the peace and justice concerns of others around the
world. This sharing translates into a better understanding of the
peace and justice issues in our own communities.

Lutheran Resource in Response to Gun Violence

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, saddened by the all-too-frequent occurrences of gun violence in the U.S., invites you on a journey of prayer, scripture, stories, and church teachings with this resource, A 60-Day Journey Towards Justice in a Culture of Gun Violence - an ELCA Resource  Through daily observances, it calls us to work toward the prevention of gun violence as people of God who strive for justice and peace in all the world. It may be used for individual reflection, group Bible study, adult education sessions, and congregational daily devotions. This began on June 16 but can be used at any time.
