International Day of Prayer for Peace

September 21 is the international day of prayer for peace and you can find the liturgy we've put together for that day.
We are focusing on the idea of the labyrinth of peace. The labyrinth we'll use on Monday in the ecumenical centre is pictured here in a very colourful version that our stewards painted during central committee. It's abut 4.5 metres square and putting it together has been quite an act of faith.

We hope to walk on it gently as we reflect on building peace. There will also be finger labyrinths available for peaople to trace with their fingers.

This symbol is part of the International Ecumenical Peace Convocation logo - the convocation will be held in Jamaica in 2010.

So how will you be marking the internaitonal day of prayer for peace. Do let our colleagues at the Decade to Overcome Violence know.
