by Sue Coleman  // Part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions 

A candle-lit community gathering on the church lawn brought friends and new-found friends together to contemplate peace and non-violence through music, poetry and prose.  Artists from The Listening performed an original spoken word poetic duet on peaceful response to racist oppression.  Participants lingered in the moonlit evening for conversation and new relationships began.
