Peace on Earth

. October 26, 2012.

For harried families, anything resembling “peace” can sometimes be elusive. This  month, parents and children can spend a summer afternoon away from the little concerns of school and budget to contemplate the bigger things, at the second annual Inner Peace Festival, presented by Ann Arbor’s Center of Light. The Centers of Light operate 11 centers across the country, teaching its non-denominational brand of Christian spirituality. The Festival is both a chance for contemplation and for the Center to spread its message of peace. See booths by local vendors and enjoy some local food and live music, or take part in an ancient tradition as you walk through the meditative labyrinth. Kids can join in a drum circle or have their face painted. Whatever your beliefs, it’s a valuable chance to find a space of calm. Sunday, June 24, 11am-5pm. Downtown Ann Arbor, Main Street between Washington and Liberty. 734-864-2017.
