Blessed Are the Peacemakers: Faithful People Gather to Speak Out for Peace

Date: 

Thursday, March 30, 2017, 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Location: 

St. Bartholomew's Church, 239 Harvard Street, Cambridge, MA 02139 (near Central Square)

50 years ago, The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke out against the war in Vietnam: "Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism." ​

Join Massachusetts Peace Action On March 30 to connect with other people of faith who are coming together to work toward a more peaceful world through reducing the threat of nuclear weapons and our warfare economy.

We will be joined by a number of honored speakers, including:

  • Mayor Denise Simmons
  • Reverend Paul Ford, Union Baptist
  • Jim Stewart, Director of First Church UCC shelter

As people of faith we are called to stand together for peace, and against hatred and fear, and to embrace our common guiding principle: to love our neighbors as ourselves. 

Questions to: Reverend Herb Taylor at pastor.herb@he-umc.org
