Share Your Time and Talent on an Oracle Campus Project!

Hi, Rev. Jay Hurley here with a Special Message to all you Oracle Friends:

Oracle Campus is a community project with global implications. Many hands are needed to see the job finished – and they don’t all need to be local hands. You can help build-out the Campus in two ways: (i) If you live close to the Campus, then come and lend a hand on-site. There are projects and regular maintenance chores you can help with, and you will receive a free meal in addition to our gratitude! (ii) If you can’t easily make it to the Campus, there are various projects that can be done off-site and brought to the Campus for installation.

I live more than five hours north in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, and I have built the lampposts, street signs, stained glass windows, outhouses and more from my workshop with the aid of a local college fraternity dedicated to building a better world. I call these projects “Non-Local Construction.” Donating muscle is just as important as donating money. Next, we need to build 3 picnic tables for the new Oracle Campground. So please join me and help finish the Oracle Campus and the Peace Pentagon. As the lead building advisor at Oracle, you can contact me at: Ohurleys@frontiernet.net.

Jay and some young whippersnappers from Shepherd College made the street signs and lampposts then installed them at Oracle Campus.

We love you Jay!

Jay hand-hewed, turned, and glued the wooden rims needed for the stained-glass windows made by artist Sheila Brannan in West Virginia. Jay then installed this first window in the Great Hall of the Peace Pentagon.
