The peace of God is shining in you now, and from your heart extends around the world. It pauses to caress each living thing, and leaves a blessing with it that remains forever and forever. What it gives must be eternal.
Wisconsin Dells, WI (PRWEB) May 14, 2012
With less than four months to go to the August 31 deadline for submissions of peace pledges to the Peace Mosaic, Nancy Reid of A Course In Miracles International is once again calling all those who have not yet taken the peace pledge to go ahead and do so, and join the thousands of people from all over the world who will be represented in this magnificent collage.
The Peace Mosaic, a centerpiece of the celebration of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace (September 14 – 23, 2012) is an enormous, visually stunning, vibrantly colorful collage, comprising thousands of four-inch square pieces of card or other material on which are written, drawn, painted or glued individual pledges for peace, made by ordinary men women and children from all over the world.
Contribution to the Peace Mosaic is open to everyone regardless of nationality, age, gender, educational level, religious or political affiliation. The sole requirement for participation in creating the mosaic is a sincere desire for peace, and a willingness to make a personal pledge to take some action, however small, for the attainment of peace. The action can be something as simple as a prayer or the lending of a helping hand.
The Peace Mosaic will be presented to the global community in a special ceremony on September 21, 2012, the United Nations International Day of Peace, which auspiciously falls on the eighth day of the ten days (September 14 -23, 2012) that constitute International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace.
Event Coordinator, Nancy Reid urges everyone to “take a moment and find the center of Peace within, and let that be the driving force in your life. That is the purpose of the Peace Mosaic. We can unite ONLY in Peace.”
Continued Reid, “Jesus Christ expresses this perfectly in Lesson 188 of the workbook of our Course In Miracles. He says, 'The peace of God is shining in you now, and from your heart extends around the world. It pauses to caress each living thing, and leaves a blessing with it that remains forever and forever. What it gives must be eternal. It removes all thoughts of the ephemeral and valueless. It brings renewal to all tired hearts, and lights all vision as it passes by. All of its gifts are given everyone, and everyone unites in giving thanks to you who give, and you who have received.
'The shining in your mind reminds the world of what it has forgotten, and the world restores the memory to you as well. From you salvation radiates with gifts beyond all measure, given and returned. To you, the giver of the gift, does God Himself give thanks. And in His blessing does the light in you shine brighter, adding to the gifts you have to offer to the world.
'The peace of God can never be contained. Who recognizes it within himself must give it. And the means for giving it are in his understanding. He forgives because he recognized the truth in him. The peace of God is shining in you now, and in all living things. In quietness is it acknowledged universally. For what your inward vision looks upon is your perception of the universe.'”
