Phoebe Berks Celebrates Peace Day

Many who attended this year’s annual Peace Day Program at Phoebe Berks commented to the campus Chaplain that it was the best to date due to the the significant resident input in the event’s planning.

This year included a new format in which Phoebe Berks residents shared their thoughts on and experiences of peace throughout their lifetimes. Chaplain Leah Knox, said, “I was so grateful to the group of residents who signed on to speak about their thoughts and experiences with peace. Their sharing proved to be the best part of the day.”

The event was also more interactive and included the making of prayer flags in a “hands-on peace project” during lunch. The flags are currently on display on the Berks campus.

Every year,the event begins with a program in the morning followed by a fellowship luncheon and ending with a time of prayer around the peace pole in the center of the Village Green.
