The United Nations is an organization with grand goals, yet is frequently undermined by the weakness of its structure. Without nation-state political force of its own, without jurisdiction or fundraising ability, it still attempts to do the work of providing food for hungry people, peace for beleaguered nations, and hope that the world might move past its violent tendencies toward a safer, more equitable future.

This one-session study looks at the genesis of the United Nations, its successes and its continuing missions and challenges. Using the prophet Isaiah's vision of the "peaceable kingdom," the Leader's Guide offers options for participants to engage the topic through conversation, "mock" congregational hearings, art, and litanies of peacemaking.

Martha Bettis-Gee is Associate for Child Advocacy in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).


Robert F. Smylie was the representative of the Presbyterian Church at the United Nations for twenty-seven years. Following his retirement he worked part-time as Director of the Disarmament Program of the World Conference of Religions for Peace.
