Reconciliation, Not Revenge, call for a meeting

by from @ist list Friday, Sep. 14, 2001 at 2:54 AM

An organization of faith based and progressive groups have organized a meeting on Friday 14th.

Today I met with representatives from several faith-based and

progressive groups in LA including Lisa Smithline (Center for the

Advancement of Nonviolence), Blase and Theresa Bonpane (Office of the

Americas), Margaret (Fellowship of Reconciliation), Don White

(CISPES) and others to discuss our response to Sept 11's horrors by

progressive communities in LA...



We are a group that seeks to clearly state our belief in

Reconciliation, Not Revenge, coupled with a call for accountability

for the criminals responsible, but NO attacks on innocents.



At this meeting we set a follow-up meeting for Friday, Sept 14 at

12:30 pm at the Peace Center 8124 W 3rd LA (3rd at Crescent Heights).

We would be very much interested in your attending and help with our

plans.



Today, we chose some symbols. We will be wearing green ribbons, and

placing a candle in our windows at night. We will also be producing a

sign for placement in windows with art showing a candle and the words

"May Peace Prevail On Earth". We will be finalizing our Call this

evening and make that available to as broad an group as possible

tomorrow. We will incorporate the Call language in a Letter to

Congress and a Petition. Finally, we will begin candlelight vigils at

Griffith Park merry-Go-Round on Sunday, Sept. 16 at 5:00 (twilight).

There will be a flyer available (including a map) tomorrow.

What 'criminals"

by Peace lover Friday, Sep. 14, 2001 at 2:40 PM

Your thoughts and motives are good, but you call for punishment of 'criminals". But we must love the people, too, who were so driven crazy by problems (most of which created by the US and allies) as to do this terrible thing Tuesday. In fact, we must love them most of all, because they were forced into something no human being would wish to do. Please change your statement so that ALL people can be loved, and peace can prevail.

hate the sin

it was a faith based person who once said that we should learn to hate the sin and not the sinner
