Prayers for Peace Tonight

A little bit of snow won't keep us from our Prayers for Peace service tonight at 7 p.m. Thanks to the area newspapers for publishing our release. Here it is in Saturday's Johnson City Press:
ELIZABETHTON — First Presbyterian Church, 119 W. F St., will host a Prayers for Peace event on Monday at 7 p.m. in Martin Hall at the church.

To commemorate Dr. 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. Participants are encouraged to bring their own drums.

All are welcome and may participate by bringing a prayer, poem or special item to share.

If you do wish to bring a ritual or prayer, e-mail Rebecca Nunley at rebekalu at comcast dot net or John Shuck at johnashuck at embarqmail dot com, or call the church at 543-7737.
All are welcome! Hope to see you!
