Santa Anita Church Hosts Peaceful Events for Barnhart School

Special guests Faith Rumer and Lou Nicolaides of Light Keeper recently spread peaceful music and mediation during an all-school morning chapel to get neighboring Barnhart students off to a great start for their week!

Earlier in the school year, The Santa Anita Church celebrated the United Nations’ International Day of Peace by hosting a community event where San Gabriel Valley representatives of all faiths shared their religious beliefs and celebrated together as one. During the day, Barnhart students celebrated the special day by ringing a bell every 15 minutes to welcome in peace.

Located in Arcadia, California, The Santa Anita Church is a New Thought community. New Thought is an umbrella designation for churches whose common thread is that a person’s individual consciousness has a powerful creative influence on their experience of the outside world.
