A number of retreat centers and groups have tied their threads together to build community, to honor an individual, to get acquainted, to symbolically mend the world, to promote diversity through unity, to offer a world prayer for peace and healing, to exemplify the power of one small act, and to keep alive the flame of hope for a more gentle world.
