Christmas Truce - Two Images. Photos: FOR

Please join us for a Multi-Faith gathering
to support a truce in the Ukraine war,
leading to a negotiation process
devoted to a peaceful resolution.

Let us gather together inspired by and actively supporting the

issued by the Fellowship of Reconciliation USA:

“As people of faith and conscience, believing in the sanctity of all life on this planet, we call for a Christmas Truce in Ukraine. In the spirit of the truce that occurred in 1914 during the First World War, we urge our government to take a leadership role in bringing the war in Ukraine to an end through supporting calls for a ceasefire and negotiated settlement, before the conflict results in a nuclear war that could devastate the world’s ecosystems and annihilate all of God’s creation.”
