Pagans looking to give and recieve interfaith tolerance can literally walk their walk on Saturday, November 16th at the Mall of America from 8 am to 9:30 am at the Beyond Belief Walk for Peace. While no pre-registration is required, those who can are asked to register in advance to give mall management an idea of how many people will attend.
The 1.5 mile walk is intended to celebrate peace beyond the constraints of personal difference. People of all spiritual and non-spiritual traditions are welcome. The platform of participation sets forth the following principles/requirements:
1. Embracing Differences- We embrace all people committed to peace. You are welcome to be who you are and will be accepted in peace.
2. Practicing the Three Tiers of Peace- Peace with Myself. Peace with my Community. Peace with belief systems and communities other than my own.
3. Creating Connection- We are for connection and not for conversion. We create a safe environment for people to be as they are. The Beyond Belief Walk for Peace is an opportunity to connect and not an opportunity to proselytize.
The event keynote speaker is Joan Steffend, former anchor at KARE 11, HGTV host, co-founder of Peace Begins with Me Project and author of peace in, peace out [sic.]
There is no fee for participation. You can register on Beyond Belief and like the Facebook page for updates.
