Watch this space for the breaking news about Hope Peace Chamber!
We are doing the site preparation and erecting the "woodhenge" structure in September.
We will be calling on you to help birth this baby.
At the International Gathering of Peace Chamber Keepers at Birdson Peace Chamber in Pennsylvania this summer, the baby Hope Peace Chamber model was blessed by Grandfather Benito Rael and the assembled Peace Chamber Elders and Keepers from around the world. With their loving attention and support the next phase of construction is in process.
I meet with Rhino Services to plan the earthworks phase of the project this coming week. We'll schedule the work in September, giving us enough time to prepare the trees for the wood henge. I'll know more about scheduling after this meeting.
Calling All Mission Partners!
Meanwhile, fundraising is amped up! I anticipate this phase costing between $5,000 and $6,000 dollars, with $4,280 of it for the earthworks contractor. He is also moving the trees for us. Last year various fundraising events raised about 10% of this amount. This year, the Peace Chamber speaks. It is ready to go in the ground.
Can you hear the call? There is a way for everyone to contribute, from $1 to $1000 or more. Use the chip in box on this blog. Watch for news about an Art Sale. And prayerfully consider if you are able and willing to pledge a significant amount of $500 or more. I will be in touch with you soon!
The sweat lodge is asking for you to come to sweat and pray for peace on September 11. It is the 10th anniversary of the attacks we remember as 9/11. My children were born in New York in the shadow of the World Trade Center, and they both learned to walk in the flat expanse of the great plaza between the Twin Towers. It is fitting that Hope Peace Chamber month is September, and we shall have a sweat lodge in remembrance and Peacemaking.
September 11 will also be a work day to prepare the trees. Come join us.
