Candler School of Theology Stands Up for Peace

By Bernadette O’Neill

Beginning on Sept 21st Candler School of Theology in Atlanta, GA set up a table on campus to write prayers and wishes for peace, which we then folded into peace cranes. We also invited people to pledge to be nonviolent and build a culture of active nonviolence. Anyone who pledged received a blue bracelet as a symbol of their committment as a collaborative effort with the blue scarf project. Furthermore, we had people sign postcards addressed to Publix to support the basic dignity of farmworkers through the Fair Food Campaign, and to write messages of support and consolation to Georgia death row inmate Kelly Gissendaner’s children.
