Meditate Peace
"When you're down and troubled ..." you might as well meditate. People around the world will be doing just that in the name of peace, even as @realdonaldtrump renews the likelihood of war with North Korea and in the Middle East. The occasion is called the World Healing Meditation—Calling Forth Peace to the Planet. "People from many faiths will participate in a moving ceremony along with spiritual music as we multiply spiritual energy to heal the planet," organizers say. This is the second year that the Salt Lake Center for Spiritual Living hosts what it calls a "life-changing event." 332 W. Bugatti Drive, Sunday, Dec. 31, 4:30-6:30 p.m. bit.ly/2zc7jKE.

New Year's Party For The Homeless
Make a difference in a homeless person's life by volunteering to help on a day when other services are closed. The Salt Lake City Mission needs people to help serve warm food in perhaps the only shelter homeless families have during the holiday season at this New Year's Day Party for the Homeless. You can help with food prep, cooking, distribution of hygiene kits, dish washing and more. Of course, you can make a financial contribution, too. Check out the time slots and sign up. Christian Life Center of Utah, 1055 N. Redwood Road, 801-973-9076, Monday, Jan. 1, 7 a.m.-10 p.m., free or donate, bit.ly/2l2DR4S.

Go To The Birds
It's that time of year to count your blessings—and the birds. The Audubon's 118th Christmas Bird Count is going on now. You can peer out your window or participate in a designated area. Volunteers have been counting and compiling data over the last century to help ornithologists and conservation biologists assess how the birds of the Americas are faring. The Audubon relies on donations to keep its historic database and technology up to date. And it depends on you—the bird-watcher—to count those flying objects. "It is an early-winter bird census, where thousands of volunteers across the U.S., Canada, and many countries in the Western Hemisphere go out over a 24-hour period on one calendar day to count birds," according to the National Audubon Society. Dead Horse Point State Park, Moab, crystalwhite@utah.govfor information, Saturday, Dec. 30 (Count continues through Friday, Jan. 5, 2018), free, bit.ly/2zgCC7a.
