Help Build a Dream
By Larry Hudson, treasurer
Things sure change quickly in this physical world. The Universal Peace Covenant reminds us of that.
“Our world is in the midst of change….”
Whether it is the new car purchased a few years ago or the house that you built for the family, everything deteriorates. You have to repaint the house or install a new roof. The car needs new tires or brakes or the antifreeze needs to be replaced because it no longer protects the engine from over heating or freezing.
This is where we find ourselves with the Peace Dome on the College of Metaphysics campus.
When the professionals constructed our monolithic dome they gave the air form (the “balloon that is inflated originally) a life of 10 years before preservation maintenance of some type would be required. 2018 is the 15th year since the Peace Dome was dedicated as a universal site for peace. That’s five more years than expected. A good stewardship on the part of all the people who have loved what the dome stands for and cared for its well-being.
As we look forward to 2020, the structure needs our loving attention.
“Peace and security are attained by those societies where the individuals work closely to serve the common good of the whole.”
The exterior needs to be re-surfaced, ramps and steps need to be replaced, and the main front window wall needs to be removed and a new more durable window wall installed. We need your help to make this happen.
“We stand on the threshold of peace-filled understanding.”
On the inside of the Peace Dome is a mandala that is being created one ceramic tile at a time, with a thought and intention of peace. Upon completion, its designer estimates there will be over 10,000 tiles imbedded in this mandala. In a similar way, we can see donations coming in from all over the world to help sustain this sacred structure.
“We hereby commit ourselves to this noble endeavor.”
We invite you to create your thought of peace as you contribute your support (and share it in the comment section below) so that ….
“Peace may prevail on earth.”
