Iowa Methodists and friends speak out for peace at their second annual peace and justice event. Bishop Julius Trimble helped gather these good people to say loud and clear that war is not the way to peace. End war now. Now is the time to speak out to government officials and tell them Bring the Troops Home. End the support of endless war. Use the dollars for the good of people and the earth, NOT destruction and violence!
