World Day of Prayer and Peace Week

Thousands of people will join Silent Unity®—an international, transdenominational 24/7 prayer ministry—and Unity churches and centers around the world on September 14, 2017, for the 24th annual Unity World Day of Prayer.  The theme of the 24-hour prayer event is “Peace in the Midst.” This year’s affirmation is “I am peace in the midst of all matters!”

 

As part of Unity’s annual World Day of Prayer celebrations, we’re hosting a meditative peace walk on September 14 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Join others of like mind as you walk the labyrinth and contemplate being peace in action.  All are welcome!

Please bring a canned good to donate to 2nd Harvest Food Bank, which will be placed in the labyrinth and blessed while we walk.  You may also donate canned goods anytime before Sept 14th, even if you are not planning on walking the labyrinth.

 

Leading up to the labyrinth walk, Unity Spiritual Center will be hosting a prayer vigil from 2-6 pm in our chapel. Unity invites people of all faiths to join in this sacred prayer activity.

 

We are also partnering with the Compassion Games again this year. Look for Alternatives to Violence Project presenting at the Imagine Spokane Forum, Saturday, Sept 16 from 9 am—4:30 pm at the Hemmingson Center at Gonzaga University. Come explore issues of eliminating poverty and creating a just, safe, and inclusive community.  And, our very own SpiritVoice is performing at the World Peace Flag ceremony,  Thursday, Sept 21 at 7 pm at the Hemmingson Center at Gonzaga University.
