Just Peace Sunday 2019 is a call for lament. It is a call to mourn in the face of crisis and catastrophe. Only through genuine mourning and repentance in the face of our complicity in environmental degradation, can we as a global population ever be catalyzed into action.

Each year, the second Sunday of October is designated on the UCC church calendar as Access Sunday. It is an occasion when all the UCC will join together in celebrating the gifts of persons with disabilities and the strides that the church has made in being more whole through being more accessible. It is also a day that we, the church, acknowledge the journey yet to be taken with our sisters and brothers with disabilities.
Pastors and lay leaders, invite your congregation to join your UCC friends around the country in celebrating Access Sunday on this day, or on a Sunday more fitting to your church calendar. Find more information and resources via our UCC Disabilities Ministries.
