“Seek Growth by Seeing Differently” builds on values of
peace, unity and love for neighbors
GOSHEN, Indiana — A message of peace and justice – as demonstrated through creativity – is the focus of a new video released by Everence Financial® in observance of the annual International Day of Peace on Sept. 21.
Titled “Seek Growth by Seeing Differently,” the video features a visual montage of artistic creations that speak to growing the values of peace, justice, unity and love for our neighbors – a theme that honors the intention behind the International Day of Peace, and is informed by the organization’s core Anabaptist principles, which includes a call to work for peace, justice, compassion and spiritual transformation.
Founded in 1945, Everence was established to provide loans for World War II conscientious objectors returning home from their Civilian Public Service assignments. Today, Everence is a leading provider of faith-based financial products and services in the United States, serving some 77,000 members and more than 30 church denominations that share the stewardship principle that all we are and all we have are from God (Psalm 24) – a historic biblical belief of Mennonite and Anabaptist Christians.
The International Day of Peace provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and faith communities to come together – locally, nationally and globally – to commemorate and strengthen the ideals of peace. The video from Everence is one way for community members to engage in peace-related activities and consider how they might seek growth by seeing differently.
Viewers are encouraged to show their support and build awareness by watching and sharing the video and by using the hashtags #SeekGrowth and #PeaceDay.
