Promoting Understanding and Respecting Differences 
MY CONFESSION OF LOVE: A DAY OF REFLECTION AND CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER LED BY TERRY LAUSCH
                
MARCH 16, 9AM-3PM. Presentation Ministries will host a retreat led by a Tibetan Buddhist, Terry Lausch, a certified meditation instructor. The retreat will allow you to explore the meaning of confession and why it is practiced in so many spiritual traditions. Confession is in one way an act of devotion, or love, not only for God, but for oneself. It involves the practice of accepting and forgiving, or making friends with who one is, at the deepest level. It is about how to forgive and love ourselves. These themes will be explored through talks, discussion, and meditation or prayer. Guided meditations will involve lying down and sitting up, either in a chair or on a traditional meditation cushion. This day of reflection is open to all faiths, and no prior experience with meditation is required. Place: Presentation Ministries 3001 11th St. S. Fargo. For information, or to register, call: 701 237-4857 Ext 211

Reminder: Panelists representing five different faith perspectives will present their views on war and peace: David B. Myers (Judaism), Cathy Schwinden (Catholicism), Stewart Herman (Protestantism), Ahmed Afzaal (Islam), and Phil Mouch (Mysticism). Although religion is often blamed for much of the violence in the world, most faith traditions affirm that peace is a central value.
