King of Prussia, Pennsylvania

Dear Peace Pole Makers:
Here are some photos for your archives and use.  Three are of the planting of a peace pole at the Mission Center of the American Baptist Churches in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.  We had 13 plates:  Braille, animal paws, English, Spanish, Creole, Burmese (1st time used), Kiowa (1st time used), Lingala (from Congo, 1st time used), Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, Russian.  We wanted languages that reflected our ethnic diversity as a denomination, our mission partners and history, our religious roots, and historic enemies with whom we seek peace and reconciliation.
Thanks for all you do.
Peace,
Dan
