Letter from FUMCOG on tonight's Peace Vigil

Dear FUMCOG family [and anyone else who reads this],

As you may know, our beloved Celeste Zappala recently returned from Crawford, Texas, where she was keeping vigil with Cindy Sheehan and other Gold Star families outside George Bush's ranch.

This Wednesday, August 17, at 7:30 p.m., we have the opportunity to join with Celeste in supporting Cindy Sheehan with a candlelight peace vigil at First United Methodist Church of Germantown. This vigil will be one of hundreds across the nation.

We plan to gather near the steps at Germantown and High Streets for a brief moment of reflection before spreading out along Germantown Avenue with our candles. If a very large number of people attend, we may hold the initial gathering inside the church. Please bring a candle and candleholder or flashlight.

The coordinated vigils are being organized in cooperation with the grassroots democracy organization moveon.org. Moveon.org provides handy tools for spreading the word. You can RSVP for the vigil by clicking on this link:

It's not absolutely necessary to RSVP, but it will help us know how many people to expect. If you are unable to get to Germantown or even if you are away on vacation, you can find another vigil near you by visiting http://www.moveon.org/.

Blessings,

Beth Stroud
