October 23 after the Service in-person and online.

Share peace activities and show you are a fan of peace!

View the film "Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard" at 12:30 pm. This film shows the relationship today between All Souls Unitarian in Washington DC and a school in Hiroshima that was devastated by the nuclear bomb. It is an inspiring film which renews all one's beliefs in children, the work of peacemaking and the efficacy of a committed Unitarian Church. Art show curator Andrei Glase is pleased to have Mel Hardy from All Souls Unitarian join us by zoom at 12:30 PST to speak about their Honkawa School project in Hiroshima.


View the film before the in-person Happening if you like at therokuchannel.roku.com here.


Following the film UUSF's Larry Danos will speak about social justice peace advocacy.

Our Happening concludes with "A Breathing Meditation" video by Rev. Margot Campbell Gross. Click Here to View.

WHAT DOES PEACE MEAN TO YOU?

Now Showing

Look closely at the colorful papers hanging in the Kings' Galleries!!

If you believe or want to believe that 1000 origami doves will grant the makers their wish "for no more nuclear bombs" then you want to see also what peace means to the children who created the origami hanging there!


You can read the thoughts of children about "What Peace Means to Them" by scrolling down this page!


Peacedoves workshops created by Andrei Glase, Curator of Childrens Multicultural Museum and member of UU Art Committee.


Why Origami and the Peace Movement? The activity is woven into the history of the terrible nuclear destruction of Hiroshima during WWII. One girl, Sadako Sasaki, was 2 years old then, and by 7th grade was hospitalized with the "A Bomb disease". Before she died she inspired the Children's Peace Movement, with submissions of folded cranes arriving from 7 countries to the Hiroshima Peace Park which is close to the spot where the bomb was dropped. The origami still arrives today.


The community can contribute to the exhibit by sending their origami and peace thoughts to
