March 19 Marks Six Years Since US Invasion of Iraq
March 19, 2009| bpfna
March 19, 2009, marks the sixth anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq. As the war continues, we are reminded of the role and responsibility of the Christian community for peace in Iraq. BPFNA encourages its members and friends to continue to pray and work for this peace.
Congregations are also asked to include prayers and litanies for peace in Iraq in this week's worship services. Many resources are available on the website of Christian Peace Witness for Iraq (CPWI), an ecumenical group which is also planning an event of worship and public witness for April 29 and 30 in Washington, DC.
BPFNA is an organizing partner of the Christian Peace Witness for Iraq and serves as its fiscal agent.
