Ringing The Bells of Peace
December 21st 

     Join me and others all over the world in an experience that will reach the world through critical mass. On December 21 at noon, where ever you are: at work, home, or school.  Christmas BellsGet outside, meditate, intention, pray or wish silently for one minute,  and then ring a bell for peace for one minute. 
     You are also invited to join us for a multicultural and multigenerational holiday service at the LUUC in Beaconsfield. We are different people with different beliefs yet we all have one faith. In our service we will be exploring the Lights, Sounds and Thoughts for the Holidays. Winter solstice, the first night of Hanukah, and the divine light within will all be explored as we search for peace and harmony and goodwill towards men. Services begin at 10:30 am, and we will be staying to ring the bells for peace together and for a potluck lunch.

      I find in hard to believe that 2008 is just about over. It has been an incredible year for me and I am so grateful for the support and trust of my clients, friends and family through this past year of growth and development. Through avid networking and relationship building I have met so many fascinating, intelligent and creative people who have enhanced my life. For these and all my blessings I am grateful. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a healthy, peaceful and blessed time through the holidays and for the new year.
