By  Valerie Deur with Newaygo County People 4 Peace (NYP4P)

As a kick off to September Events for Peace.  NCP4P offered our annual Concert 4 Peace.  Local entertainers joined together with people of our communities to share songs and words of and for Peace.  It was a joyful event.  90 folks attended. 29 people participated.  There were many high points but we especially enjoyed the Swamp Singers (Miskwaasining Nagamojig) sharing hand drums & songs of the Ojibwe language. We have had great  coverage from our local newspapers, online opportunities and sponsors.

During this week and through Oct 19th, besides appearing again in the Fremont Harvest Parade as NCP4P and /or Women in Black (with a special emphasis on our Blue scarves), we are offering other peace promoting events and activities.  We offer Mindful Peace Walks, Taize Centering Prayer services, films, Peace Liturgies and speakers and discussions on the Palestine/Israel conflicts from different perspectives. On Sept 21st, to celebrate the International Day of Peace, ceremonies will be held at Peace Poles in both Fremont and White Cloud.  We have also offered coloring & writing contests for kids and suggestions of subjects for the contemplation of peace in our personal lives.
