The UDC has been unfolding its four-year millennium Initiative: Unity-and-Diversity Person and Civilization. They encourage all to join in their programs or start new ones in their own locations. UDC focuses on interfaith activities such as their recent observance of an interfaith Peace Sunday in southern California their World Interfaith Network which holds interfaith celebrations and the completion and availability of the World Scripture project, which presents in one document an interpretation of the scriptures of the world’s religions from a modern perspective, so that they can be used with maximum effectiveness regardless of the particular faith to which the readers belong. UDC also supports and promotes the Millennium Peoples’ Assembly.
Light a candle for Peace centers on a simple way to focus and unite all peoples.
The message is:
- To bring the golden light of the candle flame, as a symbol of pure love, into our hearts and allow that love to awaken each cell as it travels through our body fields.
- To send that love out to our families and friends, to our communities, to encircle the Earth and travel out to our brothers and sisters in space. This reinforces that Love is the answer-love’s truth dissolves the mask of fear and helps us remember that we are all part of one community.
"Our problems are made, and therefore they can be solved by man, for in the final analysis our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air, we all cherish our children’s future and we are all mortal."
John F. Kennedy
On September 11th 2001, Light a Cancel for Peace will hold a special ceremony and will do so each day of this special "Culture of Peace Week". A circle of candles will be lit, one for each state and country in which individuals or groups are Lighting A Candle for Peace each day. These Peace Ambassadors will be holding the energy in 20 states and six countries during that week and each day thereafter. Our earth and all life will be bathed in the strong and bright golden light of love so that love’s truth will generate Peace and happiness in each individual’s life and they in turn will create practical solutions for Peace and happiness in our world.
We invite you to include your voice in this mission made possible by many voices joined together as one. Let this energy of goodwill weave together all generations, all race and all cultures. We will continue to work until many people in every state and country join us in this practice.
