Patti forwarded the message from Coleen Rowley. Patti wonders if anyone on this list could send it to any churches (or high schools) in your area. Patti thanks you. All was posted by Fred the Pax Salon mailing list manager after a bit of reformatting and editing.

The CBN "Church Directory by zip code 55104 : Go to http://www1.cbn.com/spiritual-life/church-directory then put in 55104 which yields 42 churches near Hamline and I have sent to most on the first page (which I will try to finish tonight) but only on the second page to St. Albans, St Marks, Christ Community and St. Mary's Episcopal; and none to any on the 3rd page. Some churches are so small, they don't have online email contacts so I'd say just skip them (or send via hard mail). I had thought of trying to send to the U of MN's (or the other university's and colleges' political science and history departments and also to high school social studies teachers, also maybe there are some clubs or veteran organizations, if we google for them?) Here is my sample cover e-mail below that I sent to a church in St. Paul. Coleen R. Dear Pastors and Staff: Hello! Please let members of your church know they are kindly invited to attend the Armistice Day speaking events that will take place Sat Nov 10 and Sun Nov 11 at three different locations in the Twin Cities, including one at nearby Hamline University. These events are being organized by the anti-torture committee of our 34 year old, non-profit peace organization, the Women Against Military Madness. The two on Saturday in particular may interest your members. The first is a discussion to be held from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm in Room 100 E, Giddens Learning Center, Hamline University with Professor David Schultz moderating. The second, at the First Unitarian Society (FUS) http://www.firstunitarian.org at 900 Mount Curve Avenue, in Minneapolis, is an "Interfaith Service of Lamentation and Hope" led by one of our guest speakers, Rev Chris Antal, former US military chaplain in Afghanistan. This will be followed directly by a forum at FUS with Rev Antal and our other guest, Lawrence Wilkerson, retired US Army Colonel. The service is from 6-7 pm, followed by refreshments, and the forum is at 7:30-8:30. The forum topics are these questions: "Does our increased militarization cause abuses of power both abroad and at home?" "Could counter-terrorism be counterproductive?" Our press release and flyer with all pertinent information that can be posted or put in a church bulletin. They are at: http://www.justcomm.org/temp/armistice_day_flier.pdf http://www.justcomm.org/temp/armistice_press.pdf We live in "interesting" times as the Chinese curse goes. Good information, sober, humane and kind assessment followed by action is required from all of us. I hope you will encourage your fellow members to come hear these knowledgeable and inspiring speakers. Yours, Coleen Rowley Member, Tackling Torture at the Top, a Committee of WAMM, Women Against Military Madness, http://worldwidewamm.org "Power is always dangerous.
