Interfaith service in Tacoma to commemorate 4th year of Iraq occupation

This just in from South Sound Peace and Justice Center Director Sallie Shawl:

An Interfaith Service of Prayers for Peace and Hope

Monday, March 19, 2007, 7PM

A Time of Reflection on the 4th Anniversary of the War in Iraq

Kilworth Memorial Chapel, The University of Puget Sound

On Monday, March 19, the Office of Spirituality, Service, and Social Justice at the University of Puget Sound will offer special Interfaith service for people of all spiritual or religious traditions to gather in prayer as we mark the 4th anniversary of the war in Iraq.

This event, initiated by students active in both our justice and religious life communities on campus, will feature student and community leaders from a range of religious and spiritual traditions. The service will emphasize both the call to peace and the offer of hope, two themes common to many of our traditions. The event, while student-initiated, is open to the campus and Tacoma communities. Off-campus guests are encouraged to carpool, and should park in the lot on the corner of 18th and Lawrence .

The event will begin at 7PM, and will be followed by a reception in the Kilworth Lounge, on the level below the main chapel.

For more information, please contact Rev. Dave Wright, University Chaplain and Director of Spirituality, Service, and Social Justice at 253-879-3374.
