“YA Read Together”:
The Open Space of Democracy
Young adults across CofChrist are reading 2011 Intl. Peace Award winner Terry Tempest Williams’ short book The Open Space of Democracy. (Only 100 pages.) It’s a great way for young adults to unite in peace and justice action, even if we can’t attend the Peace Colloquy. YAs are leading the church in our commitment to Promote Peace on Earth!
The ceremony is almost here – read it quick and share!
