Interfaith Service for Peace

You are Cordially Invited to a service of song and readings, sharing and reflection.
(Annual interfaith service coinciding with peace observances and sacred seasons for many faith traditions, and this year also coinciding with International Peace Day.)
(Rain site:  Capital Square, 400 Locust)
Who:      All are welcome.  You are invited, and you are encouraged to spread the word and bring others. The service will be welcoming to people of any faith tradition.
Why:      We will renew our resolve to work for peace.
              We also will help renew the PEACE GARDEN at Nollen Plaza. 
Organized by Des Moines Ecumenical Committee for Peace

It will be a service of songs and readings, sharing and reflection to renew our resolve to work for peace.   And it will be a service to renew Des Moines’ PEACE GARDEN, which was founded 30 years ago with inspiration and leadership of Bishop Maurice Dingman, Rabbi Jay Goldberg and others.   Come see new boulder and plaque.

More about the Peace Garden:
The Peace Garden space was created and designated 30 years ago with the inspiration and leadership of Bishop Maurice Dingman, Rabbi Jay Goldberg, and other leaders.  The Peace Garden is located on the south half of the Nollen Plaza block, with lovely trees and shade.  It already is a place of respite and reflection, but we need to continuously use the space to rededicate ourselves to be people of peace.   Come see the new boulder and plaque marking the Peace Garden.   Please join us on Sept. 19 at the Peace Garden. ]
