Let us not tire of preaching love: it is the force that will overcome the world. Let us not tire of preaching love.
Though we see that waves of violence succeed in drowning the fire of Christian love, love must win out; it is the only thing that can.

—Archbishop Oscar Romero, July 23, 1978

Good Friday Virtual Livermore Lab
Interfaith Witness and Worship
“Swords into Plowshares”

Plans for Good Friday, April 2, are moving apace. Save the date! We will provide more details as the program shapes up.

Our January 22 Demonstration in support of the new Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, on the day it went into effect, was terrific and well-attended. You may view photos by the intrepid David Bacon on FLIKR.

(Should the FLKR page be no longer accessible, you may view a formatted for EPI webpage by clicking HERE. Thank you again, David, for sharing your art/craft with us! )
