Ikeda Forum on the Dignity of Life

Respect for the dignity of life is of central importance to human rights, conflict resolution, and peace building. It provides a starting point for cultivating an awareness that all life is connected and inviolable. A deeper understanding of dignity could impact the way we view ourselves, our interactions with others, and, ultimately, the way we treat the planet itself.

Spirit of Seeger Lives On

Pete Seeger’s music and message were alive and well last night.  A standing-room only crowd filled the Fellowship Hall at Calvary United Methodist Church near Spy Pond in Arlington to sing the dear old songs with a full roster of local musicians.

From Gail Finnie’s rendition of “Oh, had I a golden thread…” to the final moments when the crowd exited the room singing “Down by the riverside…” the evening was a smashing success and raised a goodly sum for Oxfam and Doctors Without Borders.
