"A Celebration of Peace"
Concert to Benefit Veterans and Faith-Based Peace Work
People of Faith for Peace, a two-year old multi-faith organization seeking to improve peacemaking efforts among faith communities in the Greater Portland area, is presenting a benefit concert on Thursday Night, Dec 27th, at 7:30 PM at The Old Church,1422 SW 11th Ave., Portland, OR. A portion of the proceeds will go to the St. Luke Lutheran Church's Veterans' Bridge Fund that aids recently discharged veterans transitioning to civilian life. There is a suggested donation of $10.

Headlining this concert is Marilyn Keller, who brings a special magic to the stage with her charming presence and flawless, world-class vocal stylings. She is featured at the Jazz Worship Service at Augustana Lutheran Church every Sunday and can be seen frequently at restaurants, clubs, festivals and holiday events throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Also featured is Portland-native singer-songwriter Raina Rose, who according to Jeff Rosenberg of the Willamette Week, "...is everything a young female folksinger should be...From her late duo the Gypsy Moths to her latest and best-yet CD, The Prophet, the Panhandler, and the Moon, her vocal, guitar and songwriting chops continue to flourish."

Rounding out the bill is the folksinging trio Mo Mack and the Peacemakers, who feature smooth, three part harmonies, stylish guitar playing, and high quality tunes. They will be joined by Scott Bickford of the Shwing Daddies on bass. People of Faith for Peace (PoffPeace) is open to congregations, clergy and laity from all faith communities who seek to work together to become better peacemakers.

Peacemaking is a compelling and personal activity. PoffPeace encourages peacemaking by creating a context for connecting, communicating, sharing successes, organizing, training and singing.
