Christian Peace Witness for Iraq

The March 2008 issue of our church newsletter, the White Spire, is on-line. I have also been snooping over at Witherspoon and discovered that they have information about the Christian Peace Witness for Iraq.

A group of us went to DC last year for that important event. Here is a post from last year's trip. Here is a story with photos on our church website.



This year we are doing something a little different. We are staying home and participating in Creating a Culture of Peace. The 18+ hour workshop will provide the 30 participants training for non-violence for personal and social change.

The response has been so awesome that we have scheduled two more weekends, April 4-6 and April 18-20. A group of students from UNC Asheville and their professor were going to come up for one of the trainings. Then they decided to get in touch with Janet Chisolm to schedule one in Asheville!

You can schedule one in your area.

Back to us. If you are near our mountain, please consider participating! Fill out the registration form and enclose your check. On the form indicate which weekend you would like to participate. Remember, March 7-9 is full, but both April dates have openings. Hurry, first come, first served.

Thanks to our sponsors, we are able to offer these workshops at a very reasonable rate!
