First Universalist Society’s Peace Ministry Welcomes Community to Free Celebration for International Day of Peace, September 21, 2007 

First Universalist Society in Franklin (FUSF) is celebrating the International Day of Peace on Friday, September 21, 2007.  Organized by FUSF’s Peace Ministry, the celebration features an open sanctuary for reflection and an evening event to honor this important day, and welcome all area residents.    

From 11a to 1p, the sanctuary is open and provides an opportunity for reflection and meditation.  At noon sharp, fifteen minutes of silence will be observed to connect Franklin with others around the world wishing for peace at exactly this time. At 7:30 p.m., members of the FUSF Peace Ministry will celebrate International Day of Peace through words, prayers, songs, visual displays, and crafts.  All events are free of charge. 

The International Day of Peace was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981, and was first inaugurated on the third Tuesday of September 1982.  In 2002, the UN General Assembly set September 21st as the permanent date for the International Day of Peace.  The United Nations General Assembly felt that the day “should be devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.” 

The First Universalist Society in Franklin (FUSF) is located at 262 Chestnut Street in Franklin and is wheelchair accessible.  For more information please contact Bobbi Tayne Gerlits at (508) 520-2348 or visit
