Interfaith group plans fast for peace


An interfaith fast for peace will be held from sunrise to sunset Oct. 8, and religious leaders are urging people of all faiths to pray for an end to the war in Iraq. Joining in the call is Jim Winkler, top executive of the United Methodist Board of Church and Society. During the agency’s Sept. 13-16 fall board meeting in Washington, Winkler said “the war was wrong from the outset and it is wrong still.”
