Lyon College to design ‘prayer pinwheels’ for International Day of Peace

Lyon community members are creating prayer pinwheels to celebrate the International Day of Peace on Monday, Sept. 21.

College Chaplain Rev. Margaret Alsup said students living on campus have been invited to write down a prayer, concerns for the world and ways humanity can work toward peace on a pinwheel.

These pinwheels will be displayed during Chapel on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 11 a.m. to commemorate Arkansas Peace Week.

“Chapel that day will focus on acknowledging the ways in which we fall short in achieving peace,” said Alsup, “and prayers to help guide us to work for peace and the betterment of our community and world.”

The service will be streamed on the Campus Ministry Facebook at 11 a.m.

Alsup said those who are not on campus and wish to send in prayers can email her at margaret.alsup@lyon.edu. She will make sure the prayers are added to the prayer pinwheels. Community members can even design their own prayer pinwheels at home using this template.
