Central States Synod Calls for Peace and Justice

The Central States Synod has passed a resolution for Peace and Justice in response to the loss of human life around the world including Gaza, Ukraine, and Syria. The destruction of war has devastating implications not only for humans but the rest of Creation as well. The resolution lists damage to water, air, soil as well as the toll of military greenhouse gas emissions as forms of intersecting injustices that exacerbate the destruction of war.

In the face of despair, the resolution calls the member of the Central States Synod to action. Read the resolution here!

An excerpted prayer: “Let us pray. We pray for the end of all wars and for peace forevermore.  We pray for grace, forgiveness,
generosity, and peace among all nations. Give us faith to go forward caring for all people, knowing that
you are leading us, and your love is supporting us through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
