    Ration Challenge Meal for Churches

    Join Churches Across Australia and Show Refugees We're With Them, Not Against Them

     

    Refugees need our help now more than at any time since World War II. This June, join hundreds of churches across Australia taking part in the Act For Peace Ration Challenge by sharing a meal of refugee rations - exactly the same rations eaten by refugees living in refugee camps in Jordan - and provide life-saving support to refugees around the world.

    Peace Lamps

    Peace Lamps

    PeaceLamp

    Made by young people in Palestine whose hope is to place a Peace Lamp in every single church in the world and to unite as many Christians and people of faith as possible in a common prayer for peace across the Holy Land. To date, SACC has purchased – and many of you have bought through SACC – more than $16,000 worth of peace lamps/doves from Taybeh, Palestine, thereby generating employment for young people in the village. Additionally, in the past two years SACC has returned to the Holy Land a surplus of $3,600 from sales for various projects. For example, at Easter 2015 $1,000 was sent to help a Centre for the Elderly in the West Bank. At Christmas 2015 we were delighted that we could share from family to family again.

    SA Council of Churches invites you and your community to continue to pray for peace among the peoples in the Middle East. We also invite you buy a Peace Lamp or Peace Dove from the Holy Land.  For more information see www.sacc.asn.au

Prayers

  • St Teresa of Avila

    Let nothing trouble you,
    let nothing frighten you.

    All things are passing;
    God never changes.
    Patience obtains all things.
    He who possesses God lacks nothing:
    God alone suffices.
