Episcopal Relief and Development
Urgent calls for peace in the land of the Holy One
Religious and political leaders have stepped up their calls for a permanent ceasefire to the three-week-long conflict between Israel and Hamas, as the number of casualties topped 7,000 and the death toll reached 1,200. “The continued and escalating violence in the land of the Holy One, the slaughter of innocents by actions of both sides, and the rigidity and absence of true political leadership is making the world weep,” Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori wrote in a statement e-mailed to Episcopal News Service. To read more click here.The Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem launched an emergency appeal for the hospital on July 14, while Episcopal Relief & Development encourages ongoing support through its Middle East Fund.
If you have someone you would like to have on the church prayer list, please send their name(s) to the office. Their name will remain on the list for two weeks but you may add it again.
