We offer a peace table, beautiful by all
accounts, receptive to all outstanding questions, aesthetically transforming
the square of earth to the circle of heaven, with nothing lost.
Built with the vision of a peace
meeting to end all wars, this table served a whole generation of a family
to grow and resolve family conflicts and eat together and socialize and
do the bills, etc. and it was blessed by clergy of Islam, Christianity
and Judaism, breaking bread and praying together. It served as the
opening peace table at the 1999 Hague Appeal for Peace, the world’s
largest ever peace meeting. Noble peace prize winners Desmond Tutu,
Rigoberta Menchu Tum and Jose Ramos Horta sat around the table , moderated
by David Andrews of Ireland and talked of what they had learned in
their peace efforts in South Africa, Guatemala and East Timor. The table
served in the room where different meetings discussed small arms dealing,
child soldiers, nuclear weapons, the war in the Sudan, and two sessions
The megiddo peace table, now
in Ann Arbor, has also hosted the peace and environmental coalition for
the abolition of nuclear weapons and an international woman’s day "round
robin" and several "fish bowl" discussions of the wars in the world and
questions on the peace agenda.
We are soliciting funds to take the peace table
to a peace meeting in Israel. Please help pay for the costs
of shipping the table, this spring, for a peace meeting at Megiddo.
