“TWENTY FIRST CENTURY PEACE PATHS”
The 2006 Fort Collins observance of the International Hour For Peace is sponsored by many community organizations, including The Northern Colorado Multi–faith Coalition, Norlarco Credit Union, SPRE — Society for PSI (Consciousness) Research & Education, Starbucks, Fort Collins Public Access Network (Channel 22), Light Torch Productions, Rocky Mountain Sustainable Living Assn., Dr. Christine Braley, A Place For Peace, Plymouth Congregational Church's Peace With Justice Ministry, Strength Through Peace, and Prayerworks For Peace, which is also spearheading the event.
Participation in the December 31st International Hour for Peace (also known as World Healing Day and World Peace Day) is a way for area residents to join billions of people all over our planet at Noon Greenwich Mean Time for prayer, meditation, music, readings, etc. focusing on world peace and inner peace for the coming year. Much power is made available when many minds join together with the intention of creating peace in the heart of every person on earth. As Margaret Mead stated, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
Since this is the 21st year that the event has been observed in Fort Collins, the theme is “21st Century Peace Paths,” and the program will include prayers, songs, and readings from representatives of many local faith, peace and humanitarian groups. So far, participation in the Hour For Peace includes members of numerous Peace Paths in our community, including Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, Vedanta, Sufism, Native American Spirituality, Unity, Religious Science, Catholicism, Bahai, United Church of Christ, Presbyterian, Friends (Quakers), Lightwork(ers), Abraham/Hicks teachings, the United Nations Association, the Geller Center, TOAHS (Tent of Abraham, Hagar & Sarah), the Dances of Universal Peace, Food Not Bombs, People of Faith For Fairness, Not In Our Town, The Peace Alliance, Loveland Peacemakers, and Prayerworks For Peace.
