Take Action

Building Peace Through Prayer

Saturday marks the second anniversary of the unleashing of "Shock and Awe" - the start of the Iraq War. In just two years more than 1,500 American soldiers have been killed, thousands upon thousands of Iraqi dead, including countless women and children, and no end in sight. The cost to our nation's economy and influence abroad is enormous.FaithfulAmericans across the country will remember this event in many ways, but we are all committed to a reign of peace.Our friends at Sojourners are organizing nationwide prayer vigils to remember the dead and to call for peace.
