We are looking for a new day. A new wind of Spirit for peace and justice for the world. We invite anyone near our mountain to join us--whether a member of an organized religion, disorganized religion, or no religion.
Prayer sounds like a religious word, but it is not necessarily so. We are inviting anyone to come and simply be with us. Here is the press release:
Prayers for PeaceHope to see you!
First Presbyterian Church of Elizabethton, 119 West F Street, will be hosting an event for the public, Prayers for Peace, on Monday January 19th at 7 p.m. To commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday and the inauguration of President-Elect Barack Obama the community is invited to join in prayers for peace and justice for all people and Earth. Prayers will include spoken and silent prayer, formal statements for peace, sacred circle dances, poetry and drumming (bring yours!).
All are welcome to join us in prayer and to further participate by bringing a prayer, poem, or special item to share with our circle. The prayers will be held in Martin Hall at First Presbyterian Church. If you do wish to bring a ritual or prayer, please contact Rebecca Nunley at rebekalu at comcast dot net or John Shuck at johnashuck at embarqmail dot com or call the church at 543-7737.
