The recent news out of the Middle East has been deeply distressing, and we struggle to understand the unimaginable violence, loss, and suffering impacting so many. With the help of NPR’s guidance, Nativity’s Director of Public Ministry Dr. Kelly Sherman-Conroy shares some ways to learn more about the ongoing crisis in Israel and Gaza as well as thoughtful ways we can engage in conversation and action.

ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton has issued a “Statement on the Israel-Hamas War.” You can read her statement along with suggested steps for action HERE.

Finally, Lutheran Disaster Response is working with its partners in the region to provide humanitarian aid. If you’d like to donate to support relief efforts there, you can make your donation to Nativity and note “Middle East Crisis” in the subject line of your check or online gift. Nativity will send these donations to Lutheran Disaster Response where they will help those affected by this crisis.
