"Doing" Peace...so far
As a newly formed community, we are in the process of creating meaningful events that promote peace and invite others into our group. This is only the beginning! Currently, these include...
- Participation in annual MLK Walk for Peace as well as other organizations' peace-related events.
- Inviting/hosting speakers who advocate for peace. Recently, we invited activist Father John Dear, who was promoting his new book, They Will Inherit the Earth: Making Peace & Practicing Nonviolence in a Time of Climate Change.
- Planning/hosting annual Peace Week activities which can include movie/discussion evenings, book studies, guest presenters with panel discussions, whole-family peace-promoting activities. This week culminates with participation in a world-wide, United Nations-sanctioned candle-light vigil on the International Day of Peace, September 21.
