Almighty God, in a world transfixed and threatened by a new war in Ukraine, the ancient one in the Holy Land has been the subject of testimony these last two weeks before the Committee on Social Justice and International Policy of the General Convention of the Episcopal Church. Govern and guide The Episcopal Church that it may advocate constructively on behalf of justice, peace, security, freedom, and national determination for Israelis and Palestines. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
