I’m delighted to be able to participate in the Bridge of Peace Ceremony being held at Burrinja on Saturday September 20th, to recognise the International Day of Peace.
Hosted by the Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP), the Bridge of Peace Ceremony provides opportunities for individuals to take meaningful steps that result in the creation of a new partnership dedicated to and actively working for peace.
Ceremony participants build friendships with a peer from a different culture, faith, nationality or even a former enemy nation and commit to bridge the gaps of heart between them.
When: Saturday 20 September starting 11am
Where: Burrinja, cnr Glenfern Road and Matson Drive, Upwey
Cost: entry by donation, includes a light lunch
RSVP: 5968 2664 or email
The WFWP says ending the cycle of conflict by gaining a new perspective is essential to achieving world peace. WFWP is committed to utilising the remarkably powerful Bridge of Peace Ceremony to further peacemaking efforts.
The Bridge is a symbol of crossing over the barriers that many of us hold in our hearts, or that generations past have held. It is also a symbol of being willing to embrace someone different so that we ourselves become bigger and greater by our ability to accept and love someone different.
I look forward to seeing you there, Yarra Ranges is proud to be able to support the Bridge of Peace with a community development grant.
