Mission Statement

We are Owensboro area citizens committed to practicing and promoting nonviolent living through education and community partnerships.

Meetings

MEETINGS:  1st Monday of the month @ 7:00 PM.
Meetings are free and open to the public. They are hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Owensboro (UUCO) located on the corner of Cedar & Parrish.

Meetings usually begin with a brief Quiet Time that includes sitting in silence, listening to a peaceful / inspiring song.

As an educational component of each meeting, we spend some time studying from "Nonviolent Lives: People and Movements Changing the World Through the Power of Active Nonviolence" by Ken Butigan.

Also, members are encouraged to obtain and read "The Spiritual Power of Nonviolence: Interfaith Understanding for a Future Without War" by George W. Wolfe. We are planning to participating in the 7th annual Faith Fest Owensboro this November.

Here is the Power Point presentation from our first meeting (PDF) it will help give you an idea of what we hope to accomplish.
