Peace Forum is a weekly lunch and speaker series focusing on diverse peace and justice topics. The Bethany Theological Seminary, Earlham School of Religion, Earlham College and Richmond communities join together each week over a free, delicious lunch and rich conversation. We gather from 12-1pm every Thursday in the Earlham School of Religion Dining Room (228 College Avenue). All are welcome!
How is there a free lunch? We are grateful for a grant that covers many of our expenses from the John Baker Fund. Moreover, we all work together to provide devotions, lunch and clean-up. We also welcome donations! Contact Karen Duhai to add your name to the volunteer list.
