EHC plans Seventh annual Peace Pilgrim Celebration

At a time when peace in the world seems elusive, the city’s seventh annual Peace Pilgrim Celebration, Sept. 20-21 will celebrate the life and work of an American sage who walked her talk for peace.

The two-day event recalls the mission of Peace Pilgrim, born Mildred Lisette Norman in Egg Harbor City 1908, who walked highways and byways for more than 27 years spreading her simple but profound message of peace: “Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love.”

A penniless pilgrim, she crossed the continent seven times, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food, and vowed to remain a wanderer until mankind learned the way of peace. Her spirit touched the lives of thousands of people.
