Moderator of the United Reformed Church (URC) Rev. Fiona Bennett has released a statement urging churches to pray, reflect and respond around the one-year anniversary of Russia’s military assault on Ukraine. In lament and sober reflection on the widespread devastation, thousands of civilian casualties and millions of refugees, Rev. Bennett noted that there are also glimmers of hope, with Ukrainians showing resilience and receiving welcome in other countries.
As such, she called for continued generosity in offering hospitality and humanitarian support and the need for dialogue to establish a just peace that provides security for all. Visit https://urc.org.uk/our-news-stories/crisis-in-ukraine/ for more information on how you can render assistance.
