As our hearts break over the devastation of war in Ukraine, let us remember the words of St. Paul: “the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.” (Romans 8:26) As we pray, and as the Spirit prays for and with us, for peace to rule in hearts, in communities, in nations, and in this world, let us pray with our resources.
As you are able, please donate to alleviate immediate needs of refugees. Episcopal Relief and Development is partnering with Christian organizations on the ground in places like Poland, Moldova, Slovakia, Romania working tirelessly to respond to immediate needs.
Go the ER-D site https://www.episcopalrelief.org/ to donate quickly to refugees fleeing Ukraine. On the homepage there is a button that allows people an easy way to give money; our prayers are in pushing “donate.”
Please join me in giving generously.
