Statement on Kenya
A message from Presiding Bishop Mark S. Hanson
January 3, 2008
We pray that all parties will work toward a peaceful resolution of the post-election crisis in Kenya and that the violence, which has touched the lives of so many, will cease. The ELCA is committed to supporting the Kenya Evangelical Lutheran Church during this time of unrest, as it provides basic assistance to individuals in communities hard hit by the violence. We do so in the context of our relationship with the Lutheran World Federation, ecumenical partners and global companions.
