The Presbyterian Outlook
Guest commentary by Lora Burge, who was under care of NW Coast Presbytery from Whidbey PC in Oak Harbor:
Representing PC(USA) World Mission and Presbyterian Peace Fellowship, I recently spent a week in Honduras as part of an emergency delegation of ecumenical faith leaders. We went to be present during the national strike leading up to the January 26th presidential inauguration and, more specifically, to accompany Fr. Ismael Moreno and human rights organizations in the city of El Progreso. Fr. Moreno, known and “Padre Melo,” and a number of others within the organizations have received death threats, been watched and persecuted in other ways by security forces for their social justice work.
