Our thoughts and prayers go to the people of Syria. We pray and advocate for a cessation of hostilities so that aid can be brought to the suffering and constructive peace talks be conducted. When wars drag on, the one’s who suffer most are those who deserve it least. We call on all nations of good will to use their diverse resources to affect peace and security for the innocent people in Syria.
