First Thursdays Peace Vigil

Join us the first Thursday of each month, 6:00-7:00 p.m.
 
Have you seen the candle in the front window of the Foxborough Universalist Church and wondered,  'What's that candle lit for?' The candle has been lit since April 2003 and serves as a symbol of the congregation's continued prayers for peace around the world.
 
 
 

One of the principles of Unitarian Universalism is "to affirm and promote the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all." Since the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) was formed in 1961, Unitarian Universalists (UUs) have passed more than 80 resolutions to support peace and disarmament. UUs observe these resolutions and their principles to promote peace through their daily actions. In response to the escalating violence around the world and to clarify the denominations' views about nonviolent and violent resolutions to disputes between peoples and nations, during this year's General Assembly, "Peacemaking" was voted to be the UUA Congregational Study/Action Issue for 2006-2010. 

Everyone is welome and invited to participate - please show up during the hour and stay as long or as short as your schedule allows. Candles will be provided.
