JUN-07: Interfaith Convocation on Hunger: Religious leaders from Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, Eastern Orthodox, Protestant, Roman Catholic, Sikh faith groups gathered in the Washington National Cathedral in the first Interfaith Convocation on Hunger. Over 1,000 persons attended.  The Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World, said: "There is a new day dawning in this country. God has made it possible in our time for us to end hunger. This is an age old dream but it is also an urgent opportunity." In his keynote address, The Most Rev. Njongonkulu W.H. Ndungane, Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa, said: "We must put all our weight behind the growing momentum for change. Now is the time…we have an unprecedented opportunity to make a difference."


JUN-10: World: A call for prayer to promote peace: According to an anonymous E-mail: "Summer solstice at June 21st is already set as the World Peace and Prayer Day, initiated by Chief Arvol Looking Horse, the keeper of the Sacred Pipe of the Lakota Nation. GrandPa Sunhawk asks us now to depart from there and initiate the 3 remaining sacred dates equally as true World Peace and Prayer Days." Some people believe that when a certain critical number of humans pray for peace on the two solstices and equinoxes, that peace will be established.

Meanwhile, on an unrelated topic, some economists announced that the total expenditure on war has exceeded 1000 Billion per year for the first time. Estimates of the cost of providing clean water to almost everyone in the world would cost between 35 and 180 billion dollars a year. 10


JUN-13: Germany, Austria, Slovakia: Ancient Pagan temples found: Archaeologists have found the remains of more than 150 Pagan temples in a 400-mile stretch of land in Europe. Carbon dating has revealed that the temples were built between 4800 and 4600 BCE. They are believed to be older than Stonehenge in England and the Pyramids in Egypt. The buildings were made of earth and wood. Archaeologists believe that they were built by a religious community who lived together in longhouses of up to 165 feet (50 meters) in length. 11
