Christmas Truce – Ukraine

If you are a faith leader, I invite you to join me in signing this call for a Christmas Truce in #Ukraine

If you do not consider yourself a faith leader, consider asking those you do view as faith leaders to join Dr. Cornel West, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Bp. William Barber & many more in calling for a Christmas Truce in #Ukraine!

As people of #faith and conscience, believing in the sanctity of all life on this planet, we call for a Christmas Truce in Ukraine. In the spirit of the truce that occurred in 1914 during the First World War, as roughly 100,000 German and British soldiers along the Western Front in World War I declared an unofficial #Christmas Truce and ceased hostilities for a short period.
We urge our government to take a leadership role in bringing the war in Ukraine to an end through supporting calls for a ceasefire and negotiated settlement, before the conflict results in a nuclear war that could devastate the world’s ecosystems and annihilate all of God’s creation.

We invite religious leaders or organizational/denominational leadership to add their voice to the Christmas Truce campaign by signing on here: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSe5UKB1EoxgPC…/viewform
