Zen Peacemaker International staff would like to thank Fellowship in Prayer for their generous support over the past three years. Our organization was humbled and grateful to receive $2000 from the FiP nonprofit starting in 2017. It has been our pleasure to reapply and be granted support once again from the 2019 Sacred Journey Grant, this year of $5000. This has been the second grant that FiP has awarded ZPI since 2018.
FiP’s growing gift is a testament to the alignment of our mission and vision, as well as our sponsor’s acknowledgement of the efforts behind the ZPI community in bringing international peace-building throughout the world. FiP’s objective is to empower individuals and groups in exploring the rich variety of resources and practices throughout the world’s religious and spiritual traditions. In this, they have continued to sponsor the initiatives behind Zen Peacemakers International for supporting, inspiring, training and mobilizing a world-wide movement of members and affiliates in conducting humanitarian social and civic action based on the Three Tenets: Not Knowing, Bearing Witness and Taking Action.
Fellowship in Prayer, beginning in 1949 by founders Carl Allison Evans and Kathryn G. Brown, came about as a response to the global unrest seen throughout the world at that time. In witnessing the end of WWII, Hiroshima, & Nagasaki, they believed there was a deep need for a spiritual renaissance in effort to bring about a vision of a “world united in prayer.” They saw grassroots education as the medium to increase awareness in this initiative.
Beginning with a small monthly newsletter, over the years, Fellowship in Prayer evolved into a quarterly publication- Sacred Journey: The Journal of Fellowship In Prayer. In 2013 they had their last publication of Sacred Journey, as the Fellowship in Prayer reorganized itself as a grant-making foundation.
Today, Fellowship in Prayer is a non-profit private operating organization 501(c)(3) that financially supports multi-faith prayer and meditation in response to world crises, encouraging programs that facilitate prayer, meditation, community service; as well as promote interfaith dialogue toward initiatives of global peace. We are grateful of their continuous support.
