4 Peacemakers Abducted

If you have not heard, 4 humanitarian workers from Christian Peacemaker Teams have been abducted in Iraq. These are friends of friends.

Lord, have mercy.

As Rick points out, these are folks who actually believe that when Jesus said, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you," that he actually meant it and that followers should do it.

This from the Christian Peacemaker Teams website...

We are very worried about our four friends. We fear that whoever is holding them has made a mistake. Norman, Tom, James and Harmeet are four men who came to Iraq to work for peace and explain their opposition to the occupation. They are not spies. – CPT Iraq Team

Lord, have mercy.
