Various groups around the globe—some small, some large—are carrying forward individual agendas of uplift and spiritual progress during the millennium season, 1999 through 2001. Many of them have a spiritual or religious basis, because they are sponsored by churches or by New Age organizations.

Forwarding world peace is at the top of the agenda for many. For example, on December 31 a hundred thousand people will join hands around the Dead Sea for "The Great Embrace" as an illustration of the desire for peace. But there are other goals, too: benefiting charities, funding specific renewal projects, even encouraging churches to increase access to their buildings for the disabled.
