Spreading the Universal Peace Message, May Peace Prevail On Earth, Paris, France

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

January 26 to February 1st, 2010

Junko and I traveled to Paris, France last month.

We took a two day tour to Le Mont Saint Michel, a famous World Heritage site.

We enjoyed the landscape, food and meeting people.

Junko and I gave Peace dolls wherever we met people such as hotels, restaurants, stores and the airport.

People were happy to receive the Peace Dolls that bear the Universal Peace Message, May Peace Prevail On Earth.

Peace Pole Dedication at Presbyterian Church in Maumee, Ohio-USA

Friday, February 5th, 2010

March 13th, 2009

The Peace Pole was presented as a gift to the synod from the Reverend, Dr. Marie T. Cross, retiring Synod Executive.  Prior to a service of worship, there was a time of celebration, with a dinner and remarks made by members of the synod and the General Assembly.

 In response, Reverend Cross gave thanks for the years of experience and good work done in partnership with the Presbyteries and committed members of the synod. The Peace Pole, with the four languages of the synod (English, Spanish, Cherokee and Korean) stands as a lasting sign of the past and hope for the future.  The four grandsons of Ms. Cross (Nick, Luke Jake and Ben Strand of Indianapolis), carried the Peace Pole forward for the presentation. It was planted later at the entry to the synod office by Synod Moderator, Reverend David Bartley, Presbytery of Maumee Valley.

2009

An informal gathering of 12 family members and friends stood in a circle and sang all the “peace songs” we could think of such as, Peace Like a River; Peace, Peace. Then we went around the circle, naming people, place and things for which we wished peace (such as, our nation, the world, the farm).
