The community of Lismore are invited to join events organised by the Remembering and Healing (RaH) group over the weekend encompassing ANZAC Day.
Representatives from the local Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Buddhist communities as well as community leaders from non-religious groups will attend the events held over two days.
On Saturday, the Eve of ANZAC Day, an event on the theme Celebrating our Diversity and our Commitment to Peace will see a gathering to remember war and to promote a violence-free future locally and globally.
The ANZAC Day event – Reflections Valuing Peace on ANZAC Day and Reflections on War and Possibilities for Peace – will be an opportunity to speak of experiences and reflections on ANZAC Day in a safe facilitated group. Guests are invited to share about the impact of war on us, our families and our community with an opportunity to visualise and join efforts to create a different world.
The Eve of ANZAC Day will be held on April 24, at Lismore Anglican Church (Zadoc St), 5pm, followed by refreshments in the church hall.
The ANZAC Day event facilitated by Simon Clough will be followed by refreshments (gold coin donation appreciated) at The Fountain Room at Lismore City Hall on Sunday April 25 from 11am until 12.30pm.
