Poem for Darfur by George R. Pasley

My God my God
What have we done?

Nothing.

We have done nothing and
300,000
Maybe 400,000
Are dead,
Their voices no longer sing in the fields
Or laugh in the villages
Or pray in hope to you
But their cries of terror
Haunt us now,

And we prod each other,
Saying, “What can we do?”
Wringing our hands
“What can we do?”
Pointing our fingers.

My God my God
What have we done?

PPF Statement on Mid East Crisis

Once again we hear Jesus’ cry:
If you, even you, had only recognized on this day the things that make for peace!
Through tears we grieve and pray for those in Lebanon, Israel and Palestine

who live in fear for their lives
who are shelled by bombs or rockets
who are captured for bargaining
who are imprisoned without trial

and for all those who have lost loved ones.
We pray for those who take the ways of violence to address the violence they have experienced, that they may find the ways that make for peace.

Response to a reader, from Presbyterians Today

In the June, 2005, issue of Presbyterians Today, dealing with peacemaking, there was a side-bar about PPF. Our emphasis on handgun control was mentioned, and a reader responded with objections. Jim Atwood, a member of the PPF National Committee who is very active with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, made the following response.

Yes, the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship works along with The Presbyterian Church, USA, to restrict the use of handguns in the US. That has been our church's policy for decades.
