We are currently offering this opportunity on Mondays at 9am or 10pm by Zoom or Wednesdays at 1pm by Skype(EST). Peace Volunteers join as Intercultural Learners and Facilitators when they can from wherever they can.
In Atlanta: Peace Volunteers come when they can to the Intown Coffeehouse at 11am and gather in small interreligious learning groups for one hour and fifteen minutes of practicing cultural humility in listening while exploring the different religious perspectives and beliefs of one another in response to short readings from the Bible. Peace Volunteers from different religious cultures help one another learn from their stories and bring scriptural and other references from their respective religious cultures and traditions.
