Peace Day - September 21, 2008 - 35
USa arizona Interfaith Unity Church Mesa, AZ The entire month of September 2008 will focus on the creation of a world-wide consciousness for Peace. Our book for the month will be Ripples of Peace: 111 Ways You Can Help Create Peace in the World by Rae Thompson. Each suggestion in this wonderful book is designed to help replace the fear, despair, hatred, and terror felt by so many people around the world with faith, joy, love, and peace-one person and one day at a time. Also our youth will be involved in activities to teach and promote peaceful and harmonious living in our Youth classes and Youth Alive Events. Full calendar of Peace Activities www.interfaithunitychurch.com THE PEACE LIBRARY San Luis Obispo, CA We plan to have a month-long art exhibit in September known as ‘The Peace Library’. On September 21 we will have additional International Day of Peace activities, including an interactive ‘Wall of Hope’. A complete description, entry form, and examples of work from past exhibits can be found at www.thepeacelibrary.org The 4th Annual Peace AGAPE FOUNDATION PEACE PRIZE September 18, 2008, 7 to 9 PM San Francisco War Memorial & Performing Arts Center San Francisco, CA Agape was founded in 1969 by pacifists, conscientious objectors from World War II and anti-Vietnam War activists in order to provide resources to organizations that were opposing that war because traditional funders would not. Since that time, we have awarded more than $12 million dollars to more than 700 peace and justice organizations. The Agape Foundation awards grants to California-based, grassroots social change organizations that are focused on peace and justice. Unlike social services that aid and assist individuals, social change efforts confront the root causes of social problems by challenging the responsible systems and institutions. african ProjectS for Peace anD love initiativeS reaching children and Youth in Greater chicago • September 21, 2008 irwin center in homewood PRAYING FOR PEACE Royal Palm Christian Church Coral Springs, Florida Sunday • September 21,2008 7:00 PM A gathering of people dedicating one hour to focus on peace in our war-torn world.
