The 18th annual Interfaith Walk for Peace and Reconciliation honors the SPIRIT of prior Walks with a VIRTUAL 2021 Peace Walk. All are invited to join us at our FREE ZOOM GATHERING. This year’s Interfaith Peace Walk program will be similar to past Walks but adapted for a Zoom presentation as we did in 2020. We will include reflections, music, and prayers from various cultures and faith traditions. During the program we will offer breakout sessions for small group conversations to dialogue and share reflections as we had in past Walks when we traveled between houses of worship.
