Families of the World!

Maps influence our perspective of God’s world. Political, religious, and geographical presentations provide information and fascinating lenses through which to view our human family and our environment. The Peters Projection World Map is a stimulating and controversial image of the world. The UCC Synod encourages the use of this image of our world. The Perry-Castañeda Library at the University of Texas at Austin contains a fascinating map collection.

The National Geographic website has lots of information about the world, including a program that allows you to print maps for any country.
