Christian Peace Witness for Iraq

Join thousands of Christian lay people and clergy in Washington, D.C.,
   March 16, 2007, to voice your support for creating real security and peace
   in Iraq. Worship together, vigil together. (

Worship: We begin with ecumenical worship at 7 p.m. on Friday night, March 16, at the National Cathedral. This worship will be the heart of our Christian Peace Witness for Iraq, for we know that worship builds up the entire body of Christ so that we might make a difference in the world because of who Jesus calls us to be. The liturgy will intentionally embrace the rich variety of worship experiences available to us across our religious traditions.

Procession: Following our time of worship, there will be a procession down Massachusetts Avenue to the White House. The walk is approximately two and a half miles, and bus transportation will be provided for those who desire it. (Approximate time: 9 to 10:30 p.m.)

Public Witness at the White House: There will be a late-night gathering and Christian Witness in Lafeyette Park in front of the White House. Plans are underway, and more information will follow. Come dressed for the weather (whatever it is) and plan to be with thousands of other Christians like you who also long for a chance to publicly affirm the core values of our faith.
