WEST HAVEN — Bruce Barrett chose “Oh Jerusalem” as the theme of the second annual IWAGEPEACE walk to be held Sunday because it’s the sacred city in Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
And even though details of the stories of Jerusalem may differ within those faiths, Barrett will take any commonality he can get to promote peace in the Middle East and foster relationships among the faiths that focus on positive human qualities, not religious differences.
“Bringing peace among the faith traditions is one of the biggest challenges. … I think we should do anything we can,” Barrett said. “A vast majority of people want peace.”
