Make prayer, not war! Peace gives birth to and nurtures our common-unity, our community. During this one-day experiential learning, participants will explore
peacemaking and organizing through the five simple words: Pray, Educate, Act, Connect, Enthuse (P.E.A.C.E). We will learn to integrate what is already within us and will gain fluency in how we can bring more peace into our families, communities, and world.
