This Easter season, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will focus attention on the Saviour of the world through its ‘Prince of Peace’ initiative.
The campaign invites all to find the inner peace that comes from the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.
It follows the Christmas ‘Light the World’ campaign and other previous efforts to share simple yet powerful messages about Christ, that in the past have reached millions of people.
From 31 March, the Mormon.org website has featured a new Easter video clip illustrating the role of Jesus Christ as the ‘Prince of Peace’. Everyone who views the 2.33-minute clip – which will be available in 33 different languages – is encouraged to invite others to do the same. See the video here:
Additionally, from Palm Sunday through to Easter Sunday (9-16 April – Holy Week) there will be short video clips posted each day on Mormon.org’s Easter site, and other Church social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and Instagram), highlighting eight principles of peace: faith, compassion, forgiveness, repentance, gratitude, God’s word, prayer, and hope.
The clips will feature an individual’s experience in finding peace by living that principle.
Everyone who shares the messages or their own experiences is asked to use the hashtag #PrinceofPeace.
Meanwhile, Latter-day Saints everywhere – including Adelaide – are asked to invite friends and neighbours to attend an Easter Sunday (16 April) Church service with them. And, given the opportunity, to also share how the teachings and example of the Saviour have helped them find personal peace.
Another opportunity to help others come unto Christ and learn about the Atonement will be provided at the Marion Stake Easter Musical Fireside also to be held on 16 April, 7pm, at the Stake Centre, 5-9 Cutting Rd, Marion.
Who could you invite to find greater peace through this wonderful initiative and opportunity?
“And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” —Isaiah 9:6
