The Epidemic

 I’ve heard a lot of different things about the heroin epidemic in the streets of Kensington. Over 40 dead so far; 11 died in one weekend; the figure no one knows – the number of OD’s prevented by having the police down there carrying the death-preventive substance called Narcon. But someone told me some of the cops are tired of bringing back the same person over and over.

Listening in Humility, Walking Together in Strength

There were ten of us in our stocking feet sitting on folding chairs around a couple of oblong tables pushed together.  Our shoes were lined up outside the door of this sacred meeting space at Masjidullah, a mosque in the West Oak Lane section of Philadelphia.  We members of the Program Committee, were there to do some planning for the 2017 Philadelphia Interfaith Walk for Peace and Reconciliation. which is scheduled for Sunday Afternoon, April 30, 2017 in the West Oak Lane section of Philadelphia.

The TRUE Christian Perspective on Waging Peace vs. War (Reflection at the end of first Peace Week Delaware)

For 15 years I have been traveling from Wilmington DE to Philadelphia to be a part of a large interfaith, peace loving, just culture movement and the many meetings offered by groups there.  I became involved particularly with the Philadelphia Walk for Peace and Reconciliation that was started after 9/11 from vision of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim activists who wanted something good to come out of such tragedy.

What's Up with 13

Some say avoid 13 at all costs

The Interfaith PeaceWalk debunked that superstition and ushered in our Bar Mitzvah

with overwhelming spiritual showers of blessing! 

Turning 13 has great significance:

moving from tween to teen,

enlarging expectations, seeking to have a greater voice, 

becoming more aware of the world around you………and its brokenness.

And starting to take responsibility for reconciliation.

13 in dog years equates to being a senior citizen.

Peace - a Poem by Children at Al Aqsa

Peace

Peace is an act of humanity

An act of kindness

That should be brought upon everyone

Peace, peace, peace

Islam meaning peace

Peace meaning faith

Peace meaning interlocking within religion, culture and ethnicity

Diversity amongst the world

Equal but yet separate is what we lived through for many years

An expression that touches many of us so dearly

Nothing in life comes easy

So the thing you may have to do is go that extra mile for it is worth it

So don't be afraid
