It's Not the Bombing

by Noushin (Darya-Bandari) Framke, an Iranian-American Presbyterian

This Fourth of July was the 20th anniversary of my U.S. citizenship. We could have had a great party, as we have a perfect view of our town’s fireworks from our patio. But with the drumbeat to war with Iran reaching a crescendo, and being an Iranian-American, I had little to celebrate.

PPF's GA Summary

PC(USA) takes strong action for peace.

As divisions around issues of sexuality continue to dominate conversations in the wake of the 218th General Assembly of the PC(USA), our church has demonstrated remarkable unity in its collective call to peacemaking. In fact, on many issues there was such consensus among commissioners that little or no discussion was offered in plenary sessions. We want to highlight the many ways our denomination adopted policies that will strengthen its larger witness for peacemaking in our broken world.

Urge Congress: Talk, Not War, with Iran

The dangerous climate created by the current tensions between the United States and Iran could lead to war. Both governments need to commit to diplomatic talks to ease the tensions and reduce the likelihood of armed conflict.
