Prayers for Ukraine

ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton and Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada National Bishop Susan Johnson joined two North American Anglican and Episcopal leaders in a March 5 call for peace and prayers for Ukraine. “We cannot remain indifferent in the face of the injustice befalling the people of Ukraine, nor toward the potential suffering and cruelty further military intervention might bring,” the statement read. “We join our voices in solidarity with those of the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches in pleading for an end to military aggression in that land. We call on all of those involved  — whether governments, movements or individuals — to repent of aggression and violence, and turn instead to the way of peace through dialogue.”
