SUNDAY, APRIL 10, 7p.m.- James Loney: Convictions Put to the Test- A Reflection on Nonviolence

Sunday, April 10, 7:00p.m. AT: Resource Center for Nonviolence, 515 Broadway, Santa Cruz

Co-sponsored by Pax Christi and the Diversity Center.

James Loney served in Baghdad 3 times with Christian Peacemaker Teams. Loney responded to his commitment to nonviolence by training to enter war zones and engage a peacemaking role in Iraq, to stand with Iraqis during the United States invasion.  On November 26, 2005, James Loney was captured in Baghdad with 3 other CPT members. After two and a half months in captivity, one of his companions, Tom Fox, was killed by the captors. Six weeks later British soldiers freed Jim and his remaining two companions.
James Loney has just published, Captivity: 118 Days in Iraq and the Struggle for a World Without War.  Loney will reflect on the commitment to nonviolence in times of war. What can we do when the United States leads its international relations with military means? What are the dilemmas, fears, and hopes we face in practicing nonviolence?
Suggested sliding scale donation $8-15. For more info: 831-423-1626.

James Loney will also preach during worship at
First Congregational Church, Sunday, April 10, 10:30 AM.
