65th Anniversary of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights
All are invited to commemorate and celebrate this great testament to equality, peace and social justice
The 65th anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights will be commemorated on Sunday, December 8, 2013, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Second Congregational Church, Greenfield, Massachusetts. The program will include compelling dialogue and reflections by Robert Perry, a civil rights attorney from Albany, New York, and Reverend Armand Proulx, from Greenfield, a co-founder of the worldwide Centering Prayer movement.
In 1948, at the time of the declaration, Dag Hammarskjold, then Secretary General of the United Nations, stated, “Unless there is a spiritual renaissance, the world will know no peace.” In that spirit, this gathering is part of “a collective movement of hearts in the service of enlightened action,” according to Mr. Perry.
Noted musicians, Pat and Tex LaMountain, will perform “A Song of Peace,” and Russ Thomas will present an original song composed for this occasion, “Easy to Say, Hard to Do.” Jeanne Douillard will accompany a prayer for peace with Native American drumming. At the conclusion of the program, light refreshments will be served.
Sponsors for the event are the Natural Path Meditation Center based in Sunderland, Massachusetts, and Second Congregational Church in Greenfield. The church is located at 16 Court Square, on the Town Common, and is handicapped accessible.
