MUIR PEACE GARDEN. While at Manchester College for a workshop a few weeks ago, I was drawn to the Muir Peace Garden. Imagine: a small plot carved out of a busy college campus simply in the hope for the contemplation of peace. Such plots are dangerous to the status quo! Who knows what upside-down notions such places might give birth to in our top-down world? Manchester is one of three Indiana colleges that offer peace studies as a major. The other two are Earlham (Quaker) and Goshen (Mennonite). Manchester's affiliation is with the Church of the Brethren.
