Seeking peace. Striving for justice. Together.
Our staff will join young adults and people of all ages in Syria and around the world in prayer for peace tomorrow.
From the Presbyterian News Service:
A group of young adults from churches across Syria are calling for the world to join them in kindling the candle of peace by praying together simultaneously on Friday, April 11, at 9:00 p.m. GMT (5:00 p.m. EDT).
The call comes from the Syrian Multimedia Youth Team:
The Syrian Multimedia Youth Team works for positive change within Syrian society by using modern media and technology to encourage local development and dialogue for peace. Many team members belong to PC(USA) partner churches and are leaders within the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon.
The Presbyterian News Service reports that "churches in Jordan, Egypt, Palestine, the United Arab Emirates, Germany and Canada have announced they will participate in the prayer."
Presbyterians' deep commitment to peace and justice and long connection with our brothers and sisters in Christ in Syria inspires us to join this initiative.
