Celebrate Peace Day, Sept. 22

Celebrate Peace Day, Sept. 22
Please join us around the Peace Pole Sunday, Sept. 22, to celebrate world peace. We will have a time of prayer and
song between services.
Even though World Peace Day is the day before, Sept. 21, we still can focus on worldwide attention to peacemaking. The day was established by the United Nations in 1981 as a way for all humanity to commit to peace above all differences and to contribute to establishing a culture of peace.

Our church has focused on peace by planting peace poles throughout the community, including ceremonies at
Vista High School, Masjid Al-Ittehad, the Vista Buddhist Temple and on Main Street in the city of Vista. The
Reconciling Ministries Community also sponsored a Peace Vigil last year and will do so again this year on Dec. 4, the
first Sunday of Advent.

This year’s theme for International Peace Day is climate change, but individuals and organizations can find numerous
ways to go peacefully in the world, in Vista, in our church, and in our homes. Go to www.internationaldayofpeace.org to find ideas about non-violence and social justice in the arts, environment, sports, health and education.
