Pikes United Methodist dedicates peace pole, prayer garden
The Pikes Peak United Methodist Church, 2927 W. Pikes Peak Ave., installed a new “peace pole” and prayer garden outside its front door Dec. 28.
The eight-foot structure states "May peace prevail in the world" in four languages (English, Spanish, Hebrew and Korean).
Pastor Rick Carpenter said that according to his research there are 2,000 peace poles in the world, but "I don't know of any others around here. It's real exciting for us."
The pole and garden are in keeping with a church effort since September to pray for peace in the world, he said.
