Another version of our statement of peace

I didn't realize that there were two different statements of peace - take a look at both of them. We'd love your feedback.

I testify to the following:

1. I will only pursue peaceful solutions to the violence of abortion when volunteering with the Calgary 40 Days for Life campaign.

2. I will show compassion and reflect Christ’s love to all abortion facility employees, volunteers, customers, and the general public.

3. I understand that acting in a violent or harmful manner immediately and completely disassociates me from the Calgary 40 Days for Life campaign

4. I am in no way associated with the Kensington abortion facility /Planned Parenthood or its affiliates by way of employment, informant, volunteer, client, or otherwise While standing on the designated sidewalk across and east of the Kensington abortion facility:

5. I will abide by the "Bubble" zone ruling and stay in designated areas specified by the Court Injunction, with a maximum of 4 persons (any age) on the sidewalk.

6. I will not have any graphic material on signs/placards that I carry.

7. I will only talk to the public if approached first while conducting the Calgary 40DFL vigil.

8. I will not look at any employee, clientele, or at the abortion facility itself in a threatening manner.

9. I will not obstruct the sidewalk traffic or go into the street while participating in the Calgary 40DFL prayer vigil.

10. I will closely attend to any children I bring to the prayer vigil

11. I will cooperate with local city authorities and immediately modify any behavior as directed.

Statement of Peace

I pledge to conduct myself in a peaceful manner, responding with humility and love.

I pledge to conduct myself in a prayerful, positive manner with a compassionate attitude.

I pledge that I am familiar with the vigil location and key guidelines imposed by the Court Injunction. I will conduct myself in a lawful and considerate manner at all times while participating int he 40 Days for Life Campaign.

- Only 4 persons (any ages) on the sidewalk across 5th Ave from clinic by the park.
- No further West than the edge of the park.
- If more than 4 persons, overflow can be in park, between the playground and the
soccer field, but no signs or placards in this area.
- Do stand or walk on the other side [North] of the fence from the sidewalk in the park.
- Do not talk to anyone unless approached first. Do not talk to school-aged children at all.

I pledge to orient any personal guest to the vigil site, and gently remind other participants who may not know the vigil location and the 4 person limit on 5th Avenue.

I pledge to keep my commitment to the hours I have signed up for, or find someone who can, or call 403-467-6961.

Thank you, and God Bless.
