Faith and Society Update - March 2022
Welcome to this week’s Update with news, resources and events.
During this last week, Vladimir Putin’s decision to launch an invasion of Ukraine has been met with widespread condemnation and sorrow, as well as renewed calls for prayer. The Joint Public Issues Team has released the following prayer for Ukraine which might help you and your congregation as we pray and seek peace together.
God of all,
with alarm and concern we bring before you
the military intervention in Ukraine.
In a world you made for peace and flourishing,
we lament the use of armed force.
We mourn every casualty of this conflict,
every precious life extinguished by war.
We pray comfort for those who grieve
and those who are fearful.
Hear our longing that leaders and nations
will honour the worth of all people
by having the courage
to resolve conflict through dialogue.
May all our human failings be transformed
by your wonderful grace and goodness.
We ask this in the name of Christ,
the author of peace and sustainer of Creation.
Diane, Hilary, Jane, Mary, Mat, Mike, Paul, Sharon, Steve and Wale
