Please join the Peacemaking Potluck on Wednesday, March 12th as we begin our discussion of A Peace of My Mind: Exploring the Meaning of Peace One Story at a Time, by photographer and peace activist John Noltner. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Noltner has brought together fifty-two one-page peace stories, with photographs, from a broad spectrum of people. As such, he expresses the view: “When we hear someone’s story, he or she becomes more human to us. It is the first step in building understanding and it begins with dialogue.” Over a series of gatherings, we will use our reading and discussion to develop our own peace stories.
Our February Potluck, at which we discussed “The Third Way: Nonviolence in Everyday Life,” drew a good group. As a result, we decided to follow up with a book of brief peace stories by photographer John Noltner. Twenty copies of the book (at $20 per copy) have been ordered from the author and will arrive next week. If you would like a copy, please respond DIRECTLY to Bruce Larson. This is best done sooner rather than later.
