National Council of Churches Urges Prayers for Peace,
Pleads for Calm, Civility, and Healing
We ask all candidates for political office to act with restraint, to forego insults, to remove attack ads, and to express respect for their opponents. We ask those currently holding political office to work in a bipartisan manner to seek solutions to our nation’s problems. We commit ourselves as followers of Christ to work with our interreligious partners to deepen understanding, to seek peace, and to do our part to help our nation move past the current crisis.
