CHRISTIAN NON-VIOLENCE IN IRAQ

Members of Christian Peacemaker Teams are held hostage by Swords of Righteousness in Iraq today. According to The Christian Science Monitor:

More than 100 days after the abduction of four of their peace activists in Iraq, Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) says no contact has been made with the group holding them, and no communication from the hostages has reached their families. A silent videotape showing three of the four members aired on Al Jazeera TV Tuesday. "We are not aware of any contact made with those who are holding our four team members. We continue to pray that the four are released soon and brought home to their families," says Jessica Phillips, of the CPT Chicago office.

Formed by Mennonites, Brethren, and Quakers in 1984, CPT devotes "the same discipline and self-sacrifice to nonviolent peacemaking that armies devote to war." It trains international teams to support local peacemaking efforts around the world.
