The 13th Annual Makua Sunrise Ceremony
Sunday, April 12, 2009
Makua Valley, inside the military reservation
Interfaith sunrise ceremony to pray for the restoration of life and peace in Makua and the world.
The first Makua sunrise event was held on the beach of Makua on Easter 1997, when the Marines had planned an amphibious invasion training. Canoes, surfers and others gathered on the beach in prayer and blocked the exercise. The Makua Sunrise ceremony moved into the valley the following year and has been held there ever since.
Participants are welcome to share a prayer, song, poem or thoughts. There is usually a potluck gathering at the beach after the event.
