Bit of a serious one today.
The picture above is a man named Norman Kember. Your usual chap next door, married and living a quiet life in Pinner, North London. Under any other circumstances, no one outside his immediate circle would even know his name.
Following his belief in peace, Mr Kember went to Iraq to help the Iraqi people, travelling as a "gesture of solidarity" with Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT), a Canada-based international peace group. Such a strong belief should not be belittled, although some might say it is misguided. Suffice it to say, Mr Kember is a good man who wanted to help.
He is now a hostage, captured by rebels in Iraq and is facing his own execution.
The deadline has been extended to this Saturday, and one can only hope and pray that extension means that the kidnappers really don't want to execute this innocent man and his three fellow hostages. But they are demanding all the prisoners released from US and Iraq detention in return for these four lives, so this is stalemate.
God give Mrs Kember strength and succour in this terrible time. And may the hostage-takers see the madness and release these four innocent men, so they can return to their families.
The men are:
Briton Norman Kember, 74
American Tom Fox, 54,
Canadians James Loney, 41
Harmeet Singh Sooden, 32
