Vigil of Lovingkindness set for Sunday

Posted
BRATTLEBORO — Under a banner that reads "May All Beings Be Free Of Pain And Suffering, May All Beings Know Peace And Happiness. Please Join Us," Post Oil Solutions is continuing its silent vigils of lovingkindness for A peaceful, socially just society.

This weekend's vigil is set for Sunday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on the lawn in front of the Baptist Church next to Brown & Roberts, on Main Street.

At a time when basic values are being assaulted and discarded, it is essential to express and be our inherent heart values. Though silent, the Vigil of Lovingkindness is intended to give voice to these values — selfless love, personal integrity, moral courage, and a basic commitment to the sacredness of life that are the foundation of a wholesome society, and to speak up for the compassionate alternative that they represent.

All are welcome to join for a few minutes or for the entire hour. People may stand, sit or kneel, as they see fit. Bring a chair, cushion, mat, or whatever you are comfortable with.

For further information, or if you wish to be part of a contact list that will inform people of future Lovingkind Vigils, forward your name, email address, and phone number to bereal@vermontel.net or call 802-869-2141.
