@St. Peter's Episcopal Church
Dear Friends, I am sending on an impassioned plea for help in passing on the word about Kathy Kelly's talk, The Cost of War, the Price of Peace, at St. Peter's next Sunday, November 15, from 3:30-5;30 PM. We have not had a lot of lead time to organize this event and need help in getting out the word. There is no charge for Kathy's talk although we will pass the hat in support of her work with Voices for Creative Nonviolence. We will also serve simple food to those in attendance. If you have never heard this three time Nobel Peace Prize nominee speak, you are in for a real treat. Kathy has recently returned from yet another trip to Afghanistan where she works with the Afghan Peace Volunteers and from a three-month stint in federal prison for trying to deliver a loaf of bread to a commander on a drone base, When we work against water shutoffs, foreclosures, education cuts, and the shameful lack of any semblance of a social safety net, we must always remember the elephant in the living room - a bloated military budget that is draining this nation dry. Not to mention, of course, the loss of precious human life, the lives taken by war in so many ways, whether directly or indirectly. Please help us get out the word. Feel free to call me at 313-520-7465 if you have questions. A flyer is attached My hope is that we can fill the church next Sunday. Much Peace, Kim Michigan-Meta Peace Team
