First Congregational to host peace pole
International Peace Day is Sept. 21, and First Congregational United Church of Christ in Wadena plans to join the worldwide celebration by dedicating a peace pole.
A peace pole is a hand-crafted monument that displays a message and prayer, "May peace prevail on Earth," on each of its six sides. The Wadena version will display the message in six languages: English, German, Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish and Ojibwe.
The service will be at 6 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 21 on the south side of the Church (on Colfax Ave.), near the entrance to the education wing. Everyone is invited to attend.
