ABOUT US

Peace Sunday

A yearly event that honors UN’s International Day of Peace

Peace Sunday 2018, sponsored by Unity & Diversity World Council, along with One Global Family Foundation, Interfaith Communities United for Peace & Justice, IMAN Cultural Center and other co-sponsors, is a spiritual call to action, empowering us to build a peaceful and sustainable future.
This year’s theme “Sacred Activism: Environmental Justice and Human Rights” challenges us, in these increasingly turbulent times, to speak up, stand up, and actualize our most sacred values in our individual lives, our families, communities, nations, and world.
This year, our event speaks to how our sacred activism can powerfully address the injustices being done to our planet in this age of climate change, as well as the injustices suffered by the most vulnerable members of our human family as a result of both political and economic policies.
Peace Sunday features inspiring speakers, music, displays of non-profit organizations, and serves as a day of collaborative participation toward creating a more just and peaceful world. Peace Sunday includes a morning interfaith service with prayers, chanting, ceremony and a Quranic recitation, a “Justice Luncheon” co-sponsored by Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace, and the main afternoon stage program which features keynote speakers, music, multimedia and ceremony.

The Significance of Peace Sunday

By David J. Harris
The Most Amazing of all Amazing Missing All O.U.R. Lives Depend On.

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.

The United Nations Member States adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 because they understood that it would not be possible to build a peaceful world if steps were not taken to achieve economic and social development for all people everywhere, and ensure that their rights were protected.  The Sustainable Goals cover a broad range of issues, including poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, environment and social justice.

Sustainable Development Goal 16 “Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions” calls for promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

A peaceful society is one where there are justice and equality for everyone. Peace will enable a sustainable environment to take shape and a sustainable environment will help promote peace.

The theme for the International Day of Peace in 2018 is “The Right to Peace – The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70”

The theme celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Seven is the Most spiritual number and it represents magic and the perfection of completion in both physical and spiritual things. We have Completion.

Our demise is that few are aware that we have moved from the Age of Communication and Consciousness to the Age of Wisdom and Kindness.

The History Of Peace Sunday


Peace Sunday, UDC’s annual event that honors the United Nations International Day of Peace, (Sept 21), first began in 1982 and was produced by “The Year of Shalom Committees” as a protest against the arms race in support of the Nuclear Freeze Movement.

It was a huge event at the Rose Bowl. UDC founder, Rev. Leland Stewart was on the Year of Shalom Committee and later received the rights to the name.

We have continued the legacy since then with different themes every year in various locations.

To delve into the history of Peace Sunday, please watch the featured presentation below.

WHAT IS SACRED ACTIVISM?


Sacred Activism is reaching within ourselves to our deepest connectivity to spirit, and actualizing that spirit into reality through service to humanity and the planet. Sacred Activism has always found its expression through a grassroots movement of the people, enrolled in a significant consciousness shift, which has created a new paradigm. It begins with the advent of a new idea, a social need to have that idea be fulfilled, and the timing and historic circumstance to propel it into a transformative reality.

Sacred Activism begins within ourselves, is based in non-violence, and extends through service that entails activism. Activism calls us to use our voice and propel that voice into social action.  If we just stand by without speaking out, without participating actively in a cause we believe in, we can become complicit in the perpetration of the unconscionable.  In activism, we bear witness to what is going on, observe and expose where a blindness, a denial, an injustice, inequity or crime has occurred, and organize, mobilize and engage in recognizing the dilemma, bringing accountability, offering non-violent alternatives, and in creating sustainable solution.

The activism must get in the way to disrupt the perceived injustice and corruption, and devise strategy on how to raise public awareness in identifying the change that’s needed, and present viable ways to impact policy.  No one individual can tackle all the issues of the world, but we know we are not alone.  In these times, the voices of progressive, sacred activism has never been more needed in the call to use our voice, our vote, our organizing, our petitioning, our protest, our non-violent civil disobedience, our marching and our sacred activism to serve the calling of our conscience.
