Interfaith Atlanta–Faith Alliance of Metro Atlanta [FAMA] recognizes and celebrates September 21st as International Day of Peace also known as World Peace Day. Since the United Nations first declared this day in 1981 with a global resolution, communities around the world have paused to breathe in hope and resolved to direct their actions toward global peace.
Let every individual in every community rededicate themselves to bring about the blessing of peace that is desperately needed in our world. Let us recognize the bridges being built by wise and thoughtful diplomacy, by civil conversations between those with diverse opinions, and by friendship with each other as we reach across political, religious, national, and cultural lines. Amongst and between human beings there should be no lines of division.
To that end, FAMA invites the Atlanta community to join the discussion on unity and diversity at the upcoming Interfaith Virtual Panel on Monday, September 21st at Gwinnett Public Library with the Interfaith Speakers Network. The virtual event will take place at 6:00pm. Advance signup is strongly encouraged. Register today at https://gwinnettpl.libnet.info/event/4497349.
We are called to guard with vigor the humanity of every soul in every corner of the world, until one day all will experience the joys of freedom, safety, unity, and loyalty to others.
May the worthy aspirations of this Day of Peace motivate each of us to recommit and deepen our resolve to do the work that will one day bring a pervasive and lasting peace.
