Jewish Voice for Peace event in OlyWA Dec 11th

12:00 pmto2:00 pm

Spread the word please. Brown bag lunch with Rebecca Vilkomerson of the Jewish Voice for Peace at TESC, Sem 2, Room 1107 from noon to about 2 pm on Wednesday, December 11th.

Want to think about peace in the holy lands?   Wonder where the holy lands are?  Look at your feet. Look to your heart.  Seek the peace in your soul.

As Black Elk said:

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Taka (the Great Spirit), and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.

This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this. The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is known that true peace, which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men.”

Black Elk – Oglala Sioux

come join us and pass the peace, share the peace, bring the peace that is within the souls of all of us.
