For the past few years, the Church has sponsored worldwide efforts to share simple yet powerful messages about Jesus Christ during Easter and Christmas.
The videos and messages shared through social media, advertisements on buildings and vehicles, and at visitors’ centers typically reach tens of millions of people worldwide.
The messages and opportunities to participate have helped both members and non-members keep Christ as the focus of these religious holidays.
The Church launched its first Easter initiative in 2014 with a weeklong campaign titled “Because of Him.” This Easter, the Church is inviting the world to find the inner peace that comes from the life and teachings of the Savior Jesus Christ through its “Prince of Peace” initiative.
Appropriately timed to coincide with the week leading up to Easter, the purpose of the “Prince of Peace” initiative is threefold:
• Invite all to come unto Christ.
• Learn principles of peace from the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).
• Share ways to find peace through the Savior.
Invite all to come unto Christ.
Beginning March 31, visit the “Prince of Peace” website on Mormon.org to watch the 2:33-minute video illustrating the role of Jesus Christ as the “Prince of Peace,” then invite others to do the same. The video will be available in 33 languages, and the website is in 29 languages.
Learn principles of peace from the Prince of Peace.
During Holy Week — from Palm Sunday, April 9, to Easter Sunday, April 16 — learn more about nine principles of peace: faith, compassion, forgiveness, repentance, gratitude, God’s word, prayer, and hope. Each day, the website and social media sites will feature one principle with a video about an individual’s experience finding peace by living that principle.
Share ways to find peace through the Savior.
Watch for the videos and related content on the Church’s social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and Instagram) or the Prince of Peace website in English and Spanish. Visit the website to see what others are doing to share the message. Then be sure to share personal efforts and experiences. Don’t forget include #PrinceofPeace.
