Peace Pole Project and Dedication Ceremony

WICHITA, Kan.—Wichita State University invites students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community to the Peace Pole Dedication Ceremony on April 23 at 12 p.m. in Shocker Hall Courtyard with cookies and punch to follow. The event is sponsored by Global Faith in Action, a local non-profit, and seven WSU-affiliated co-sponsors.

"The peace pole will be the first student sculpture permanently installed at WSU and demonstrates our commitment to work together for the common good.” Chandler Williams, president of Global Faith in Action College said. “It is important to remind each other that today more than ever we must learn to stand together or we will all fall.”

The ceremony will include a performance by Roy Moye III, a WSU student and Shockapella, a WSU men’s barbershop quartet. A reception will follow with cake and punch provided by Student Involvement. Religious leaders from the community are encouraged to attend and contribute to an interfaith prayer for peace. Everyone in attendance will receive a ribbon that they are invited to tie to the sculpture during the ceremony.

Amazing Faiths Dinner participants enjoying
a meal and discussion together.

Happening within homes across the Wichita Area, Amazing Faiths Dinners help create common understanding and respect between people of all faith and non-faith traditions. Our dinner activities include;

- Sit down to an evening meal with 8-10 others of diverse beliefs and traditions.

- Explore matters of faith and spirituality through thoughtfully designed discussions.

- Dinners take place in homes of pre-registered hosts.

- Dinners are moderated by trained leaders who ensure a safe and respectful environment.

In less than 45 minutes over 1,500 volunteers packaged enough food to serve 479,034 meals. View the commemorative video below. The meals will serve 800 Haitian students each day for over one year. Representatives of the Guiness World Record were on site and provided certificates because we broke the world record, but even better, school children and their families in Lambert and Borde, Haiti will not go to school hungry.

Even this summer, when school is out of session, children are receiving food, thanks to caring Kansans. We are indebted to three organizations, Rotary Club of Wichita, Volunteer Kansas and NUMANA, plus Channel 12 and 104.5 FOX for making this happen.

The Golden Rule Workshops

What would the world be like… if everyone
lived according to the Golden Rule?

Global Faith In Action will be partnering with the Scarboro Mission Society of Toronto, conducting Golden Rule Workshops in Kansas. The society has developed a workshop designed to work with expressions of the Golden Rule found in the holy writings of 13 faith traditions.

The workshop has been tested in a number of environments and consistently generates great enthusiasm, reflection and discussion. Also, because the Golden Rule crosses so many traditions and philosophies, it possesses tremendous moral authority and creates a common bond among the religions of our world — plan to participate!
