United StatesMassive Mobilization:
If the United States continues to occupy Iraq, Christian Peace Witness for Iraq (CPWI) will create another opportunity for Christians to 'speak their peace' through worship and witness.
We will invite you, your family, your congregation and your neighbors to come again to the nation's capitol on or near the date of March 7, 2008.
On the same date, we also invite you to create worship services in your community. Over 200 local vigils were held March 16, 2007, all empowering participants to advocate for peace in their communities, countries and the world.
Together we will fill houses of worship, remembering and learning anew the ways of the Prince of Peace. Then we will carry our public witness to the halls of government power, calling our leaders to embody values fundamental to the Christian tradition—and shared in other traditions—that truly make for communities of prosperity, security, and justice.
We'll need your help--prayer, time, talents and financial donations.
