Rev. Michelle Lusson, DD, the founder of the Community Chapel of Wholistic Healing, has requested that we create and promote a Day of Peace, which is meant to be shared throughout the world.

Therefore, the Community Chapel of Wholistic Healing, a nondenominational fellowship for personal and global spiritual healing, is calling upon its members and all people so inspired, to engage in a Day of Peace on Saturday, November 7, 2015. We are moved by the many signs and events of our time to unite in action by praying, meditating, and calling from the depths of our spirit for freedom from turmoil, violence, and war and to forge a will for peace. Throughout Saturday, November 7, we invite you to participate in individual and collective ways that speak from your heart.

On this Day of Peace, we have a twofold aim:

  • First, reflection and guidance to help individuals attain inner peace and
  • Secondly, calls through prayer and group meditations to spread the light of peace among all people.

Just by taking time out, we are in a position to aid to those who are suffering, through the unimaginable power of prayer and focused meditation. The gift of hope and the restoration of faith in life are yours to give by participating in this loving day-long exercise.

We live day to day, not realizing the impact we have on others. Peace in you, consciously united with peace in others, will go a long way toward creating peace in all you meet.

We have a few suggestions listed here, but other sources enumerate many more. For example, the book, “Ripples of Peace” by Rae Thompson, a long-time CCWH member, has many ideas. The new report, “Global Peace Index 2015,” by the Institute for Economics and Peace, provides recent geographical facts regarding needs and progress for peace in today’s world. (See   

Some Ideas for a Day of Peace

  • Start your day with prayer and a short meditation to set a positive tone. Then throughout the day, let go of worry and fear for tomorrow. In other words, stay in the moment.
  • Do a forgiveness routine that encompasses first self and family, then self and others, then self and community, and finally, self and the world.
  • Spend time in nature, appreciating the Earth and its gifts to us.
  • Offer formal and informal prayers and affirmations.
  • Remain aligned and centered by such activities as physical exercise, music, the arts, and other activities that bring you happiness.
  • Lighten your mood; perhaps take in an uplifting movie.
  • Connect with family and friends.
  • Focus on the good in everything and everyone.
