MSUS Has a Peace Pole

In June, 2016, MSUS celebrated its 50th Anniversary. This article focuses on the church's Peace Pole.

Michele Wallace, MSUS member, first became aware of Peace Poles when she was at Robben Island in South Africa. Seeing a Peace Pole in the area where Nelson Mandela and so many others were once imprisoned was a profoundly moving experience for her. She started advocating for one at MSUS in 2006. To raise money for the Pole and its installation, the opportunity to purchase a language plate was offered at the 2007 MSUS annual Service Auction. The MSUS Peace Pole was dedicated on World Peace Day, September 21, 2008. Michele chose English because "to be meaningful, peace must begin at home.” Learn the complete history of the Peace Pole and the chosen languages on the MSUS web site: msuu.org/About Us/Peace Pole
