"As the world watches the Russian military aggression and invasion within Ukraine, we as United Methodist followers of Christ reaffirm the truth that 'we deplore war and urge the peaceful settlement of all disputes among nations.'
"I invite you to join with me in offering prayers of protection, peace, and resolution. Please pray for all individuals in this region of the world being impacted by these events, including our United Methodist brothers and sisters in Ukraine. With a united heart and spirit, I share with you the following letter from my colleague and friend, Bishop Christian Alsted."
