Thus you shall salute him: “Peace be to you, and peace be to your house, and peace be to all that you have.”

ASP's 2019 Theme — Be The Peace — encourages us to seek God's peace where it may be found— within ourselves, within our communities, within our world. We are agents of peace wherever we go.
