Peace Project with Outward

Pastor Robin and Cass were lucky enough to discuss the topics of Peace, Love, and Kindness with several groups of students at OUTWARD! in the Upper NY Conference of the UMC. Listen as some of the high school students tackle the difficult topic or how to share peace with the world- especially in light of Parkland, international conflict, and a heated political environment. 

We're so grateful for this amazing group of eloquent students- thank you!

The Anatomy of a Lockdown

The students at Williamson Middle School and Pastor Robin have worked together before on a few pieces for Common Good Radio, and we always look forward to our opportunities to talk with the Radio Club about kindness, peace, honesty, and leading good lives. But recently there was a lockdown out their school because of an outside threat. Hear them describe what it was like for these middle school students to experience this in their school, and how they dealt with the stress of the situation. 

Peace Project with Victor, Kevin, and Caroline

Pastor Robin and Cass were super impressed when they got into the topic of respect and peace with three middle schoolers at OUTWARD! in Syracuse last month. How do leaders of the world today differ from Jesus and the leaders of Roman times? How do people gain respect and keep it in this world? How do we lead, and what do people look for in leaders? Is it possible to do this all peacefully? What can we learn from scripture and the teachings of Jesus when we ask ourselves these big questions?

It's hard to draw conclusions for day-to-day life from history class, but these kids are most definitely making the connections. Listen in!

The Peace Project

It's not an easy time to be a kid. In light of recent events across the country, we at Common Good Radio think it's time to embark on our next venture: The Peace Project. Join Pastor Robin and the Girl Scouts in our hometown as we get acquainted with each others' idea of peace. Do we passively enjoy peace, or actively seek it out? What ISN'T an example of peace, and how do we try to return to a peaceful status quo in our everyday lives? We hope for this to be the first of many Peace Projects with children from all over, in a joint venture to promote peaceful discussions in a world that can seem anything but.
