By Melissa Binder | The Associated Press | July 26, 2019 09:53:06The Rev. David Tovar of the Baptist Church of Orlando in Florida has been honored by the Peace Flag Alliance for his work with the church.
The group, which is named for the Peace Fellowship, was formed to honor the peace icon of the church and to bring more peace and love to communities around the world, said its founder, Tovari.
The Peace Flag Association of America was founded in 2015 by the Rev. Al Sharpton, a prominent civil rights activist and Black Lives Matter activist.
“I’m honored to be recognized by the Alliance for Peace and the Alliance to Peace,” Tovaria said in a statement.
“We are a group of peace loving people, with an emphasis on human rights, peace and the dignity of every person, especially those marginalized by our criminal justice system.”
Tovaria, who is the pastor of the Orlando Community Church of Christ, said he was looking forward to continuing his work to bring peace to his community.
The Peace Flag’s mission statement says it promotes “a world where all people, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age, or socioeconomic status, are free to live freely and with dignity and respect in a peaceful, civil, and just world.”
It says the Peace Flags Association seeks to “strengthen peace, justice and social harmony in the United States, and to raise awareness of the human rights violations against the people of the United Nations.”
The Alliance for Truth in the Gospel said in its statement that the Peace flag is a symbol of peace in America, which has seen two consecutive wars since the beginning of the 20th century.
The peace symbol is also used as a symbol in the Christian church, the Alliance said.
The group said the Peace flags have been featured on a number of events in the U.S., including the United Methodist Conference, the National Basketball Association’s All-Star Game, and the Ugly Betty Foundation’s “Peace in the World” series.
The Alliance said it will continue to raise funds to send Peace Flags to other countries around the globe.
It also will help raise awareness for the church to send the Peace Colors to its parishioners in the Philippines and Africa.
The church in Orlando is the only congregation in the country to be awarded Peace Flags.
It has a mission statement that includes the word “peace,” and the peace symbol has been used by the church for thousands of years, according to the Peace Fax website.
