Tonight I spoke at the Witness for Peace Gathering held at Portland’s First Congregational United Church of Christ marking the fifth year of the war in Iraq. This was an ecumenical gathering filled with song and spirit. Use the below link to download the podcast of my remarks for your iPod or personal computer.

Representatives from First Congregational UCC, First United Methodist Church of Portland, St. Phillip Neri, and Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon also participated. Hundreds from churches across the Portland area attended.
Protests are occuring across the nation this weekend calling for an end to the war.
