Prayers for Peacemakers, September 10, 2014

Pray for Colombian Conscientious Objector Jhonatan Vargas, a
member of the Foursquare Church of Barrancabermeja.  This week he was transferred into military custody and will
stand trial for going AWOL.  The
Christian Peacemaker Team in Barrancabermeja has visited him in prison and
reports he is scared but fine.  The
Colombian peace and human rights organization Justapaz writes, “As details become
clearer we will develop a judicial and advocacy strategy on behalf of Jhonatan
and will ask you join us in taking action.  For now, we ask you to pray for Jhonatan.  May God grant him grace, and may the
judges he will face grant him his freedom and release him from military
service.”

For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us
 who are being saved it is the power of God. I Corinthians 1:18

Borders

People move. The human experience has included migration along every step of the way, and the nation state will not eliminate movement. So it’s about time we start to work with movement instead of continuously trying to stifle it.
