As Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, "Follow me and I will make you fishers of all." Immediately they left their nets and followed him. And going on from there Jesus saw two other brothers, James, the son of Zebedee and John, his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Jesus.
Galilee Peace Garden
The Galilee Peace Garden is located near Soda Bay Road, Kelseyville in Lake County and gives opportunity for quiet reflection and spirit to moved on/out/into the world to make a difference in humanities search for peace.
A special Re-Dedication of the Peace Garden has been held for 9 years -- since 2002 -- and will continue each year until we are a World at Peace.
Hatred is like rain in the desert - it is of no use to anybody.
A Special Place - Galilee Peace Garden and Peace Pole
The presence of this Peace Pole announces that this garden is a special place, dedicated to peace on Earth. Our Peace Pole is only one of four in all of Lake County. By planting a Peace Pole here in our Peace Garden, we are linked with people all over the world who have planted their Peace Poles in the same spirit of peace. Every Peace Pole proclaims the prayer, "May Peace Prevail on Earth", in the language of the country and often several other languages as well. The more than 200,000 Peace Poles around the world are on all continents, in every country you can think of. They are in simple places, such as churches and gardens, and extraordinary ones, such as at the World Court at The Hague, the United Nations, the Pyramids of El Giza, Egypt, the North Pole in Canada. Peace Poles are promoting healing of conflict in places like Sarajevo and the Allenby Bridge between Israel and Jordan. Many political leaders, such as former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and President George W. Bush, and many religious leader, such a Pope John Paul 11, Mother Teresa, and the Dalai Lama, have all dedicated Peace Poles.
A Peace Pole is a handcrafted monument that displays the message and prayer "May Peace Prevail on Earth" on each of its six sides, in different languages. The presence of a Peace Pole announces a special place, dedicated to peace on Earth. We, at Galilee, have installed a Peace Pole with the message, "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in our new Peace Garden, inscribed in the following languages: English, Spanish, Pomo, Hebrew, Arabic, Norwegian, Swahili, Chinese, Hindi, Gaelic, ASL (Sign language), and German.
