The staff of Sojourners rejoices at the news that Jim Loney, Harmeet Sooden, and Norman Kember - members of Christian Peacemaker Teams who have been held captive in Iraq for nearly four months - have been released today.
We also now enter fully into our grief for fourth team member Tom Fox, who was found dead near Baghdad on March 10.
As we celebrate the release of our brothers and pray for their return to health and life, we pledge to continue working on behalf of the unnamed tens of thousands of Iraqi dead, disappeared, detained, and tortured. Christ is present in their suffering (Matthew 25).

Jill, we've got our lamps lit, and we love you.
