A meet and greet hosted by the Peace Fellowship will be held in the St. James Episcopal Church Parish Hall, 1101 North Broadway, for the Transform Now Ploughshares defendants at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 9.
Sister Megan Rice, Michael Walli, and Greg Boertje-Obed will tell there story. These three peace activists entered the Y-12 nuclear weapons facility in Oak Ridge on July 28, 2012 to protest weapons production there. Their breaching of the security systems and their nonviolent protest drew national as well as local attention, in addition to Congressional recognition. They will be in town for an arraignment hearing on Feb. 7. Whether you agree or disagree, please come for discussion, questions, and a rare opportunity to meet people who risked their lives for what they felt faith in God called them to do.
The three were also speakers over the weekend at TVUUC and Church of the Savior. If you have questions about the St. James event please go to (link...)
