The annual Good Friday Interfaith Witness at the Livermore Lab was a hybrid event this year. A couple dozen participants from the Ecumenical Peace Institute, Livermore Conversion Project, and Tri-Valley CAREs met at Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab’s West Gate. Many more joined the service and rally online.
Marylia Kelley from Tri-Valley CAREs offered insights on nuclear weapons activities happening inside the classified fence just behind the group.
Betsy Rose, Benjamin Mertz, and Francisco Herrera provided great music.
A rich liturgical program unfolded, ranging from invocation to contemplation of war to liturgical dance to theater.
The Rev. Dr. Dorsey Blake offered a keynote address on Dr. King’s theme, “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?”
The event was dedicated to Daniel Ellsberg and called for the abolition of nuclear weapons.
