Fargo,ND Prays at the Peace Pole

Nativity Church was gifted with one of the first peace poles in Fargo-Moorhead.  To celebrate this week of peace, I visited 9 classrooms of children in our elementary school, Grades 1-5. We talked about the history of the peace pole, what peace means, why the four languages on our pole were chosen (English, Spanish, Lakota and Arabic), and how we can be peacemakers at school and at home.

We finished our “mini-field trip” by joining hands in a circle around our pole and praying the Our Father for peace, especially for the children of the world.
