Do you want to help create peace in our world?

Of course you do, so please mark your calendars to participate in
The 29th Annual Observance of the
International Hour For Peace
Wednesday, December 31st, 2014, 4:45 to 6:15 A.M.
(That's Noon Greenwich Mean Time and for us, really, really early Wednesday morning!)


Join millions of people all over the planet to create Inner Peace and World Peace for 2015!


All peacemakers and all paths to peace, sacred and secular, are welcome and honored!



“We Are Peace”



Community events include the John Randolph Price World Healing Meditation,
along with music, prayers, speakers, and information from
a wide variety of local faith, humanitarian, and peace groups.


Also known as World Healing Day and World Peace Day, the Hour For Peace is a global effort launched in 1986 by John Randolph Price and the Quartus Foundation to offer people all over the world an opportunity to gather together for peace, love, understanding, and forgiveness through a simultaneous global mind–link at noon Greenwich Mean Time on December 31st of each year. Based on the Quantum Physics principle that thought can direct energy and thus create reality, the event is designed to synchronistically join millions of minds around the world in prayer, meditation, music, art, dance, poetry, readings, dialogue, and other ways to focus on and manifest lasting peace on Earth.


In Northern Colorado, our goal is for people to not only gather to pray for and focus on World Peace and Inner Peace during that magical hour, but also to connect with other peacemakers and get ideas and resources to create and practice peace all year long.

2014 THEME AND THEME SONG — We Are Peace


Our 2014 theme “We Are Peace” is from the chorus of the song “Nothing More” by The Alternate Routes. The Connecticut–based band wrote the song in support of Newtown Kindness, www.newtownkindness.org, an organization created “to promote kindness as a guiding principal of humanity” by the parents of 6 year old Charlotte Bacon, who died in the Sandy Hook school massacre. Millions of people were introduced to the song Dec. 17, 2013, when it played during the closing scenes of CBS' No. 1–rated drama “NCIS.” On February 8th, 2014, billions of people all over the globe heard it as it played during the closing scenes of the 2014 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies in Sochi, Russia. In Northern Colorado, we are proud to have it as the theme song for our observances of the 2014 International Hour For Peace.


“Nothing More” by The Alternate Routes


To be humble, to be kind. It is the giving of the peace in your mind
To a stranger, to a friend; to give in such a way that has no end.

We are Love. We are One. We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace. We are War. We are how we treat each other and Nothing More.

To be bold, to be brave. It is the thinking that the heart can still be saved.
And the darkness can come quick. The Dangers in the Anger and the hanging on to it.

We are Love. We are One. We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace. We are War. We are how we treat each other and Nothing More.

Tell me what it is that you see; a world that’s filled with endless possibilities?
Heroes don’t look like they used to. They look like you do.

We are Love. We are One. We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace. We are War. We are how we treat each other and Nothing More.
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More.
We are how we treat each other …

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN 2014: A NEW PARADIGM


Many new things have happened in the past two years. In 2013 we got 501C3 covering by the International Association for New Science, courtesy of its founder Bob Siblerud. Also, we are now the “Northern Colorado Observances of the International Hour For Peace.” Yep, that's plural.


Fort Collins began observing the Hour For Peace in 1986, the first year it began globally, and has done so every year since then. Different organizations were involved, but there was one single event in the city and often it was quite an extravaganza. About five years ago, Whole Life Center For Spiritual Living started having a simple, meditation–only observance of the event; no theme, no program, no speakers; just lovely, quiet focus on peace for the new year. So now folks in Fort Collins have their choice of two completely different styles of events.


Last year we expanded to Loveland and Greeley. Many dedicated peacemakers have made the drive to Fort Collins in the middle of the night and in the dead of winter year after year and are now glad to have an event in our own communities.


In summary, with this new paradigm, we can have numerous observations of the International Hour For Peace all over the area and share the nonprofit covering, the website, the theme, the logo, artwork, posters, publicity, or whatever resources the individual community needs.


If you're interested in participating in this year's Hour For Peace in any way … by hosting or helping with an event in your home, church or community, please contact the coordinator Victoria Gardner, 970-663-9001, cell 970-227-1539, Hour4Peace@att.net. No contribution is too great or too small!


CREATE WORLD PEACE AND INNER PEACE:


Participation in the December 31st International Hour for Peace is a way for area residents to join millions of people all over our planet at Noon Greenwich Mean Time for prayer, meditation, music, readings, dialogue, etc. focusing on world peace and inner peace for the coming year. When many minds join together with the intention of creating peace in the hearts of all people on earth, world peace happens! 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.”


A correspondent from Italy wrote, “This is our ‘'Super Bowl,’ and we plan for the December 31st event just as families and friends in your country anticipate coming together in their homes to watch that media event in January. The victory we see, however, is not one–sided. The prize is peace for all people.”


Most Northern Colorado events will have hot tea and coffee available, handicap accessibility, plus special areas for parents with babies and/or young children. The information tables will have flyers, pamphlets, etc. about local peace, faith, and humanitarian organizations, events and activities. Our goal is for people to not only gather to pray for and focus on World Peace and Inner Peace during that magical hour, but also to connect with other peacemakers and peace organizations … to come away with ideas and resources to create and practice peace all year long!





“There will be no peace among the nations without peace among the religions.
There will be no peace among the religions without dialogue among the religions.”

~ Hans Küng
