In conjunction with Campaign Nonviolence events (organized by Pace Bene) this week in our nation’s capital and around the country, some Grace Church members and friends were out in the community at the Saturday Rutland Farmers Market.
They brought along three large blackboards, hand made by our friend Jacob Powsner from Chittenden. Thank you Jacob! On each board was a question that farmers market visitors and residents could write their answers. Here are the three questions:
How can I build peace within myself?
How can I build peace in Rutland?
How can I support others in Peace and Justice?
There were many inspiring thoughts, ideas and answers to these questions that were written in colorful chalk.
The three boards are now on display in the Grace Church Fellowship Hall. So while you are enjoying your coffee, please take a few moments to take in these inspiring words from our community members.
Thank you to all the people who participated. Thanks to Kathy and Karl Ross, Jacob Powsner and Rev. John Weatherhogg for spending part of your day at the Farmers Market talking with people and hauling these large blackboards back and forth! Thanks to the Rutland Farmers Market as well!
