…is the theme of a multi-faith celebration of peace in song, music and narrative in recognition of the International Day of Peace. Although the actual
day is September 21st, over 500 events have been planned across the country during this week. Our local celebration will be held Sunday, September 18th, at 4PM at the Ed Clap Senior Center, 2801 32nd Ave. S. in Fargo. The event is free and open to the public, sponsored by the FM Bahai Community, the Presentation Sisters, the Center for Interfaith Projects, and the Unitarian Universalist Church.
This would be a good week to stop by our Peace Pole (on the corner of 11th St. and 18th Ave.) to offer a prayer for peace and to see if you recognize the four languages proclaiming its message. Nativity’s Peace Pole was one of the first erected in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
The Peace Day Celebration is also part of National Welcoming Week, which includes a pictorial display at the Fargo Public Library, a Community Table, Concordia’s Faith, Reason and World Affairs Symposium, and many other activities.
