Service & Youth Education
Guest Speaker: Rev Celeste Frazier
Talk Title: My Peace I Give to You
Peace is a divine quality. Therefore it is already within us. But Peace is not stagnant. Peace is an active agent in our evolutionary process. It is a growth stimulus. This living vibration enables us to share Peace with our children, the world and the lives that are yet to be. When Jesus said it, he was talking about more than world peace but we use International Peace Day as an impetus to remind ourselves of the beauty that we can behold inside of us.
Music: Lori Gray Muligano, Dorothy Biris
