Peace Candle

Peace Candle

The candle in our Sanctuary is a peace candle.  The peace candle movement began in 1985 when a woman in Russia asked a pastor visiting from the United States to "do something for world peace."  Friends are encouraged to take a candle to other congregations as a gift. Candles and an information sheet are available in the Great Room.
