Prayers for Syria

ELCA Presiding Bishop Mark S. Hanson wrote to Christian church leaders in Syria, offering prayers and support for an end to violence.

"We who are at 'the ends of the earth' cannot forget the importance of Syria for the growth of our faith or the communities of disciples keeping the faith in the land of Christianity's birth," Hanson wrote.

He also asked how the ELCA could help Syrian church leaders be "ministers of reconciliation."
