Our Peace Pole reflects our commitment to peacemaking, and offers a place for reflection and community gathering. The phrase, “May Peace Prevail On Earth”, is carved on each side of this pole in a different language. We have chosen English, Hebrew, Spanish and Miwok as the languages most representative of our faith tradition and our community.

Placed in our front lawn, it is a sign to all who pass by of our hope for the biblical vision of shalom when “nation shall not lift up sword against nation; neither shall they learn war anymore.”

The Peace Pole Project was started by the World Peace Society, an organization dedicated to uniting people across the world through the universal saying: “May peace prevail on earth”. Since 1985, over 200,000 Peace Poles have been dedicated in over 190 countries around the world. They are found in town squares, in places of worship, in parks and city halls and schools – any place where the spirit of peace is embraced by people of good will.
