Blessed Are The Peacemakers

Online/ZOOM Talk and Community Workshop led by Pardeep Singh Kaleka and Arno Michaelis, founders of Serve 2 Unite and authors of THE GIFT OF OUR WOUNDS.

We live in a time of increasing division and expression of hate. How do we respond? How do we ‘love our enemies’? This free community event is sponsored by the Addison family in memory of Rev., Dr., Duane Addison and features founders of Serve 2 Unite, Pardeep Singh Kaleka and Arno Michaelis. On August 5th, 2012, Singh Kaleka’s father, Satwant, and five others were murdered by white supremacists when their place of worship was attacked. The shooter was a member of the neo-Nazi skinhead gang that Michaelis had helped found in 1989. Single parenthood, love for his daughter, and the forgiveness shown by people he once hated all helped Michaelis change his life. These brought him love for diversity and gratitude for all life after he left hate groups in 1994. Since his father’s passing, Singh Kaleka has become a licensed trauma therapist and partnered with Michaelis via Serve 2 Unite, an organization whose mission is to bring a peaceful society where all are valued and included.
