Standing Silence, Sunday, June 25

Standing Silence

Silent Action for Justice

Sunday June 25 at 3:30 pm

Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, 450 Auburn Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30312

(across the street from the King Center)

 

Join this interfaith group for a brief invocation followed by 20 minutes of silence.

In this sacred silence we recommit ourselves to welcoming strangers, fighting the attitudes and laws that favor one group over another, and defending the institutions so important to our democracy.

We are Buddhists, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, other faiths and no specific faith, people who consider themselves spiritual or just spirited, all who hunger for an experience beyond the words that barrage us daily.

 

You are welcome to stand as you are able, or bring stools/folding chairs or mats for seated meditation.
