  Swords into ploughshares
by Nemorino
 
 

Favorite thing: In St. Nicholas Church you can still see one of the original hand-drawn "Swords into ploughshares" posters announcing the Monday peace prayers.

The slogan is from the Bible, Old Testament, Isaiah 2:4:

They will beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.
