This is from a special Sunday at our church, where we (and many folks from the local peace and justice community) planted a Peace Pole (also see the Wikipedia article on Peace Poles). Our had the message “Let Peace Prevail on Earth” in 4 languages, English, Spanish (since it OKC’s second most spoken language), Cheyenne (in recognition of the native people of this place, and because of the many Mennonites who are Cheyenne) and Arabic (as a way of expressing the brother/sisterhood we share with those that we are told to see as “enemies”).
