We call on all members to join us as we express the faith of our community through our feet and walk to make a difference on Mother’s Day, May 10th, 2015.
Our religious leaders, organizations, and clergy, representing different religious traditions, affirm: the sacred worth and dignity of each person that one life lost to homicide is one life too many that a unified religious voice is urgently necessary that the Golden Rule embedded in all world religions compels us to act toward others as we would wish they would act toward us – with love and compassion that peace is foundational within each of our respective religious traditions: 1. In Buddhism – we are inspired by the Bodhisattva Path of Compassion; 2. In Christianity – we commit to the dream of justice, reconciliation, and God’s Beloved Community; 3. In Hinduism – we acknowledge the moral law of karma and we desire Shanti, Shanti, Shanti; 4. In Islam – we submit our wills to Allah and work for Salam; 5. In Judaism – we commit to the vision of the fullness of Shalom; 6. In Unitarian Universalism – we commit to understanding and protecting the interdependent web of existence of which we are a part; 7. In Humanism – we commit to our responsibility to lead ethical lives and work towards the greater good of humanity.
We will meet at FP Milton at 7:30 to carpool over, or you can meet us at Town Field in Dorchester. Please join us in living our faith outside our walls! For more information , please contact Elise Henricks at email@example.com
Walk with us for Peace!
We hear and read about it every day. Needless and senseless violence in our schools, on our streets, in our neighborhoods. Please join us as Boston, and ALL of Massachusetts, comes together to make a statement: "It's time to unite, and together, stop the violence that impacts all of us!" This Mothers' Day, Sunday, May 10th, 2015, thousands of caring and concerned citizens will rally and walk in support of creating a more peaceful and violence free community.
The Mother's Day Walk for Peace began in 1996 for families who had lost their children to violence. On a day that we celebrate mothers and children, the Walk became a place for families and friends to feel support and love with thousands of others who pledge their commitment to peace. The Walk is the primary fundraiser to support the work of the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute.
Please note ALL walkers must register. www.mothersdaywalk4peace.org
