Peace pole ceremony planned

The Interfaith Student Center at UT Martin will hold a Peace Pole planting ceremony April 10 at 5:30 pm.
A Peace Pole is a hand-crafted monument that displays the message and prayer “May Peace Prevail on Earth” on each of its six sides. The message on the Interfaith monument will be repeated in 12 different languages, including English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, Chinese, Cherokee, Swahili, Hebrew, Korean, Portuguese and Russian.
“Our hope is that the Peace Pole will help to unite all members of our community by calling us all to work and pray for peace,” says Interfaith alumnus April Merritts.
According to the Peace Pole Project, which manufactures the monuments, there are tens of thousands of Peace Poles in 180 countries all over the world dedicated as monuments to peace. They serve as constant reminders for individuals to visualize and pray for world peace.
The Interfaith Student Center is located on the eastern edge of the UTM campus at 312 Lovelace Ave. For more information, contact the Rev. Jolinne Balentine-Downey at 587-2603.
