World pauses to pray for peace

Imagine if people all around the globe paused at the same moment and prayed for peace.

At noon, Greenwich Mean Time, on December 31, that happens. That can be kind of tough for those of us living on the west coast of the United States. Noon in England is 4:00 a.m. here. But some of us are going to get up at for a 4:00 a.m. interfaith prayer service on December 31 (others won’t go to sleep on December 30). The service, co-sponsored by the Tri-City Interfaith Council, Interfaith Women of Peace, and Pax Christi, will be held at Niles Discovery Church, 36600 Niles Blvd., Fremont, this year.

Prayers from several different faith traditions will be shared by those present. The Rainbow Ukulele Club will offer a song or two. There will be a time of fellowship following the service. Invite your friends of all faith traditions to join us.

You can download and print a flyer for this event here.
