Please Join to End the 61 Years Long Korean War and Wage Peace!
Did you know that the Korean War has never ended? With the Korea War Armistice of 1953, the people of South and North Korea have been under the state of war for the last 61 years, causing persistent tension and conflict and leaving more than ten million separate families many of whom have been passing away without ever meeting their loved ones again.
2012 General Conference of UMC has called all United Methodist to organize “a March for Peace for the Korean Peninsula.” 2013 General Assembly of World Council of Churches adopted a statement on “Peace and Reunification of the Korean Peninsula,” calling all partner churches to “embark a movement to replace the armistice with a peace treaty.” A call for peace for the Korean peninsula is indeed a call from our risen Christ who has broken and still breaks every wall of division and conflict.
Heeding such a call for peace, the Reunification committee of Korean United Methodist Church, together with WCC, NCC Korea and many other UM and other ecumenical partners, invite you to join together for “Korea Peace Vigil and March” in Washington, DC on Friday, July 25 and Saturday, July 26, 2014 in the 61st anniversary of the Korean War Armistice.” We will gather to witness the human cost of the unended Korean War, walk and pray together to raise our voice to end the war and establish peace for the people of two Korea and the world!
