What if the world stopped shooting for just one day? Join us for Peace One Day on Wednesday

Let me invite you to join us for a special observance of United Nations Peace Day beginning at 5:30 pm on Wednesday at St. Paul's.

Peace One Day is the dream of a British filmmaker, Jeremy Gilley, who proposed in 1998 that we set aside one day a year -- Sept. 21 -- as a ceasefire from all warfare and violence across the globe. He won the endorsement of the UN just four days before the attacks on New York on Sept. 11, 2001, and he has been working every since to make this idea of ceasefire a reality.

On Wednesday at 5:30 pm we will have music, prayers and a special observance of Peace One Day. Then please come to our Community Night dinner (free!). During dinner we will give brief presentations on the programs and ministries we are involved with that help make the world a more peaceful place.

At 7 pm we will show Gilley's latest film documenting Peace One Day. I hope you will find it as inspirational as I have. Let's be a part of this incredible effort, one day at time. Who better than us? Please come on Wednesday.
