International Day of Peace
Five plus years of war have taken a heavy toll on our Syrian brothers and sisters. It is time for the violence and war to stop and to begin the hard work of moving forward, toward a future where all Syrian can live together in peace and security.
Together we must speak out and call for an immediate cessation of all bombing campaigns and military actions that perpetuate this terrible war. As a global community, we must respond with compassion and immediacy to the pressing needs of millions of refugees and internally displaced people. And, we must stand in solidarity with our Muslim and Arab neighbors who are being targeted in hateful ways.
Join this Call for Peace in building the Beloved Community.

she moves me
blogging for mother earth
Pax Christi Florida Member, Jim Rucquoi
i want to sit on this rock with you awhile, friend, think out loud a bit. first up, these new readings i’ve bumped into that continue to shake me awake. ever since starting out on my bike three years ago for mother earth, mother’s been whispering in my ear something fierce. after climate ride california last year i can think of little else. scattered news of old that held me in its addictive clutches fails to move me anymore. you move me, mother, front & center at last.
