Coalition brings gathering

Washburn Review

Sept. 21 is the United Nations’ International Day of Peace and to commemorate the occasion, Grace Episcopal Cathedral, Campus Ministry and Washburn Peace Works are hosting a local gathering for a million minutes of peace.   Students and others are invited to meet the Kuehne Bell Tower on campus at noon for a minute of shared energy: prayer, meditation, or other spiritual action.

The event is part of a worldwide multi-faith effort to emphasize the power of prayer.

“It is our hope,” said Kathy Slawson, Campus Minister for Grace Cathedral, “that this event will cause people to stop for a minute and be very aware of the difference one person can make-beginning with one minute of positive energy and prayer.”
