An interfaith service with Pastors for Peace and George Regis of Pasadena, CA All Saints Episcopal. We joined to break bread and celebrate our hope of peace.
We heard from Micah about making pruning hooks and plow shares, as well as the Beatitudes of Jesus. We prayed for the fallen soldiers, with 500 crosses and Stars of David with a name on each of them, and photos of some of them behind our table.
There were prayers for George Bush, for Iraqi civilians, for individual soldiers and veterans, living and dead. So many prayers, prayers for our damaged earth, our damaged families. There was a prayer in Arabic by one of our Muslim brothers who are here.
We sang Amazing Grace and prayed the Lord's Prayer, and greeted each other as an Image of God.
We had half a dozen clergy here today. The call is going out for clergy of all denominations and faiths to come next Friday to pray with Cindy at Camp Casey.
Right now there are a lot of folks outside eating lunch with Cindy. We have veterans and Gold Star Families and Code Pink and just dozens and dozens of folks coming from all over-- many of them Texans.
Cindy says there are miracles happening here, and it is true. Come and see !
