Youth attend Peace Picnic

Here are photos from our Peace picnic with Pullen Church last night. It was an inspiring event! I invited Diana Powell, from Justice Served NC, to come and share about how she was instrumental in the truce that has been called between the Raleigh gangs. Her presentation was heart-breaking, miraculous, and beautiful! We are so grateful to her and we look forward to more good learning and good work together! We invited her and the 9 Save The Youth guys to our church for a lunch event. We also made a peace pledge and signed a peace banner. The evening was complete with pizza, peace cookies (lovingly baked by Susan Maleszweski) and everyone received a key necklace with the phrase "You are the key to peace!"
