A Quaker Meeting Called with a Concern for the Future of our Country
Saturday, January 7, 11am
Lytton Plaza, 202 University at Emerson, Palo Alto

See more photos of the Public Meeting by clicking on "read more" below.

The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), a traditional Peace Church, offers to the community an opportunity to listen deeply and humbly to each other and to the Spirit which guides human affairs. For an hour, we will settle into the silence of worship as practiced by Quakers, wherein anyone moved by the Spirit may rise to speak.

It is the silent waiting for the urging of the Spirit which is the foundation Friends' testimonies on Peace, Unity, Simplicity, Equality, Community and Integrity. Social Action based on these testimonies is strengthened by arising from worshipful silence.

Evergreen Islamic Center Hour of Prayer & Solidarity

 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

Several hundred people gathered in prayer and solidarity with the Evergreen Islamic Center (EIC) on Sunday, December 11.  The event was filled with love and joy.  Featured speakers included leaders from diverse faith traditions as well as elected representatives from the city of San Jose and State Assembly and Senate.  People of all faiths and walks of life felt called to offer their support.

The community came together at the invitation of the EIC after the mosque received some hate mail.  Clearly we say "no" to hate and "yes" to all that holds us together as sisters and brothers in the human family.  We stood shoulder-to-shoulder in solidarity with one another in a powerful expression of love and commitment.

A New Moment in the Ethics of the Use of Force?
Ken Butigan
Thursday, October 13, 6:30pm
Santa Clara University, 500 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA

St. Clare Room in the Learning Commons (Library)

Ken Butigan is a long-time peace-maker, director of Pace e Bene, and founder of Campaign Nonviolence. Butigan, who was a member of the international planning committee for the Vatican's Conference on Nonviolence this past Spring, will report on highlights from the conference and steps emerging from the unprecedented meeting to spread active nonviolence and address injustice and conflict in our world today.

The conference called on the Catholic Church to boldly recommit itself to the centrality of the nonviolent example of the life of Jesus Christ. Attended by bishops, theologians, members of religious orders and lay people from every continent, this conference sharply criticized "just war theorgy" and urged Pope Francis to share with the world an encyclical (teaching document) on "nonviolence and just peace."

Multifaith Peace Walk & Picnic: A Sign of Hope & Friendship!

 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

Imam Faheem Shauibe, Rev. Danielle Parish (Spark Church) and Rabbi Chaim Koritzinsky (Congregation Etz Chayim) led the beginning of the Multifaith Peace Walk on Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016.  The event opened with more than 750 participants singing songs of peace in Arabic, Hebrew and English with drums and guitars, readings from Jewish, Muslim and Christian scriptures, face painting for children, youth making signs saying "Peace" - "Salaam" - "Shalom," and a ritual of friendship that included Palo Alto Police Department Chief Dennis Burns with local and national faith leaders.

After a 2.5 mile walk and other brief programs on peace, the community gathered for a picnic that began with the release of peace doves in Mitchell park. The picnic, hosted by American Muslim Voice, allowed time for creating new friendship, more singing and dancing, and stories of peace making internationally as well as at home.
