Our Featured Event

Peace Pole Project and Dedication Ceremony

Join us March 5th, 2015 in the courtyard of Shocker Hall at 12 p.m. for a community-wide call for peace. We will dedicate the first student artwork permanently installed on Wichita State’s campus with inspirational speaker Rev. Dr. Gerald L. Durley, Vice President of WSU, Dr. Wade Robinson and WSU Madrigals with a community choir under the direction of Dr. Michael Hanawalt. They will sing “The Gift of Peace” composed by Dr. Dean Roush.

The Sculpture Guild at Wichita State University is a registered student group at WSU that has designed and built the Peace Pole that will be dedicated on March 5th. The Peace Pole Project is an international movement that started after the bombing of Hiroshima. Communities all over the world have planted large poles with the words “May Peace Prevail on Earth” written in different languages on all sides. A reception will follow with hors d’oeuvres provided by Student Involvement at WSU.

Universal Harmony Concert

Included within this year’s concert are sacred musical pieces of West Africa, Far East and the Middle East as well as original music by the artists. The musicians and dancers met the day prior to the concert in retreat. During the retreat they shared their faith journeys, music they may want to share, and invited each other to feel free to join them as they shared music that expressed their faith tradition.

Consequently, the concert was fresh, a real dialogue, and filled with improvisation. They simply let the “winds of God’s spirit” lead them. This video features Ustad Ghulam Farid Nizami and his 13 year old son, Muhammad Faraz Nizami.

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!
