Welcome & Opening Ritual
Welcome and introduction from your hosts, Elizabeth Debold and Thomas Steininger from One World in Dialogue. They opened by calling upon the intention behind this 24-hour vigil, and providing guidance for participants to give the most to their engagement.
Elizabeth and Thomas were joined by Thomas Mendoza, who shared a message from a Mayan fire ceremony for One World Bearing Witness, and also by David Nicol, who offered an invocation to subtle activism.
