-- Tom Fox's meeting asks for your help
You may have heard that Tom Fox, a member of Langley Hill Friends Meeting, Baltimore Yearly Meeting, was kidnapped in Iraq on November 26th. Tom is one of four members of the Christian Peacemaker Teams, an international humanitarian organization, whose captors have set tomorrow, December 8th, as their execution date unless the captors' demands are met. In addition to his work with young Friends organizations, Tom has ties to Guilford College (his daughter is a graduate) and to a number of current and former FWCC volunteers. We ask that you pray for Tom and the other CPT members, and that you share this request with others.
Tom Fox's meeting asks for your help
Langley Hill Friends are holding prayer vigils today, December 7th, and ask all Friends everywhere to join them by either
a.. holding a simultaneous candlelight vigil in your community
b.. if you cannot attend, hold your own personal vigil, and put a candle in your window or front lawn
c.. pray for Tom and his fellow peacemaker team members, seeking their safe and immediate release. Pray for those who suffer similar situations in Iraq and those who have taken such offenses against these individuals and their families
You can read Tom's postings at w ww.waitinginthelight.blogspot.com. Additional information can be found at the Friends United Meeting website.
