The virtual Peace Breakfast hosted by the Peace and Justice Institute (PJI) provides an opportunity to slow down and pause for fellowship and prayer while celebrating and promoting religious and cultural diversity. This year, the theme of the Peace Breakfast is what one’s faith or thought philosophy teaches us about grief and loss.

As Peace and Justice Institute Director Rachel Allen mentioned in the Fall/Winter 2021 PJI Journal, “Now, more than ever, we need community to address the shared suffering we experience with COVID-19. Few among us have not been touched by the ravages of the pandemic with the disparity in health outcomes, economic devastation, loss of loved ones or the consequences of the isolation so many experience.”

The Peace Breakfast will bring together leaders from various faith traditions to participate in an interfaith dialogue about grief and loss. Participants will have the opportunity to interact and share during breakout sessions.

The Peace Breakfast, founded by Penny Villegas, was the first signature event of the Peace and Justice Initiative, and it continues to offer an opportunity for those of different faiths and those without religion to share their perspectives and find commonalities between them.
