Interfaith Observance Of UN International Day Of Peace At Lakewood Presbyterian Church
Friday September 21st is designated as International Day of Peace by the United Nations. The first Peace Day was in 1982. Coinciding with the UN day is the International Day of Prayer for Peace declared by the World Council of Churches. Prayers for peace can be shared on Facebook and Twitter as well as via email and in person observances.
Lakewood Presbyterian Church will be offering an interfaith program of the Dances of Universal Peace from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. The Dances are an interfaith spiritual practice sometimes called body prayer or moving meditation. Simple circle dances taught in the moment are done to chants of sacred phrases or mantras from many world faith traditions. People of all faiths are invited to join in. No partner or experience is needed. The church is located at 14502 Detroit Avenue, at the corner of Detroit and Marlowe, and is handicap accessible.
