Weekly Witness for Peace

“Release the need to hate, to harbor division, and the enticement of revenge. Release all bitterness. Hold only love, only peace in your heart, knowing that the battle of good to overcome evil is already won.”

John Lewis, Across that Bridge: Life Lessons and a Vision for Change

In this time of great anxiety, isolation, and grief, the Huss Project will be hosting Weekly Witness for Peace, a space for the Three Rivers-area community to come together in silent reflection, meditation, and prayer for what our individual and collective work is to nurture peace and justice.

Every Tuesday from October 6th through November 3rd, we will gather on the Huss Project property for 30 minutes from 5:00 to 5:30pm, with spaces to walk, sit, read, and engage in other activities in silence. Some may come to deepen their understanding of the work of peacemaking; others may come seeking a sense of community in their feelings of anger and despair. We invite participants of all backgrounds, political affiliations, and faiths to join us each week in this simple practice of solidarity.

Logistics:

  • Please park in the main parking lot and visit the blue tent by the main entrance to check in. Kindly bring a mask to wear at check-in, but feel free to remove masks when physically-distanced out on the property during the silence.
  • Silence will be observed outdoors no matter the weather, so please come prepared for the day’s forecast.
  • If you’d like to sit, please bring your own chair or ground covering.
  • A bell will sound to mark the beginning and end of the half hour. If you can only attend a portion of the time, please come!

We hope you’ll join us for the Weekly Witness for Peace at the Huss Project Tuesday evenings from 5:00-5:30 pm.
