The Unitarian Universalist Association released a statement on the current crisis on October 17, 2023. During our congregation’s service celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we handed out copies of the statement to our membership in attendance and member Naomi Yanis delivered a short message of introduction.
Our Social Justice Circle on Dismantling Racial, Religious and Ethnic Oppression felt that it was appropriate to return to this statement given Dr. King’s clarion calls for global peace during war, and the fact that the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East has not abated.

Peace be with us and all people whose lives are at risk in war-torn areas across the globe.
