One Voice Day
annually on July 26th
Students of the School of Metaphysics
Religion & Spirituality
One Voice Day unites all countries of the world with the reading of the Universal Peace Covenant on July 26th at 6 p.m. UT each year. Individuals and groups around the world unite spiritually, declaring their commitment to global peace while reading the covenant, a 577-word peace pledge which "serves as an instrument defining how to think peacefully and live peaceably in a world that is constantly changing." Students at the School of Metaphysics—who were "from all walks of life, several religious beliefs and nationalities, diverse occupations, all races, as young as seventeen and as old as seventy-five"—created the pledge in 1996 and 1997, and it was signed on October 8, 1997.
How to Observe One Voice Day
The day is to be observed by reading the Universal Peace Covenant with others. Going beyond this, the day could be spent being peaceful and working towards achieving long-term peace. In addition, books and films that explore peace could be read and watched.
