Embracing Faith Through Advocacy

“…the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,

will guard your hearts and your minds in Jesus.”

-Philippians 4:6-7

Friday, February 24th, marks one year since Russia’s hostile invasion of Ukraine.

As we approach that date, it is essential to reflect on the ongoing conflict overseas and its impact on Ukrainians and people worldwide.

Over the past year, there have been tremendous casualties from this war and people who fled Ukraine to nearby countries.

Along with its horrific impact on Ukrainians, the effect of this conflict on the global economy has been detrimental.

From the negative impact on the world’s gas flow resulting in massive energy price spikes to the increase of geopolitical risk worldwide to the significant reconstruction and humanitarian costs, recovering from the aftermath of this war will take years to complete.

With no clear end in sight, now more than ever, we need to pray for peace, a diplomatic solution to this conflict, no further escalation with nuclear weapons, and for the people of Ukraine.

With all the tensions about this conflict made worse by the news and social media, it is easy to forget about the Ukrainians whose lives were disrupted and changed forever when Russia invaded the country.

Regardless of your personal beliefs about this conflict, this Friday, take time to pray for peace so that the people of Ukraine can live safely and rebuild their country.
