Different interpretations mark International Day of Peace

New York (ENInews)--The 30th anniversary of the U.N.'s International
Day of Peace and its 2011 theme, "Make Your Voice Heard," was marked
by a number of
different interpretations and expressions of the idea of peace. The
same day -- 21 September -- is called the International Day of Prayer
for Peace by
the Geneva-based World Council of Churches (WCC). This year, the WCC
asked the attendees from last May's International Ecumenical Peace
Convocation,
and anyone who followed the event, to offer a prayer for peace. The
prayers are being posted on Facebook. [498 words, ENI-11-0501]
