Episcopal Church writes President and Congress about South Sudan

Episcopal News Service reports on the January 10 memo on the crisis in South Sudan to the Obama Administration and Congress from the Episcopal Church’s Office of Governmental Relations:

A Jan. 10 memo to the Obama Administration and members of U.S. Congress sent by the Episcopal Church’s Washington, D.C.-based Office of Government Relations outlines the current crisis in South Sudan and makes recommendations urging the government and the international community to partner with South Sudanese civic and faith leaders to stem the tide of violence and build peace.

The six-page memo, based on the firsthand accounts of church leaders on the ground in South Sudan and Episcopal and Anglican partners worldwide, conveys the church’s understanding of the current crisis that has engulfed the world’s newest nation.
