Global Ministries is among 12 churches and Christian organizations which sent a letter to President Obama in which several aspects of the Syria crisis are addressed. Reminding the US Administration that the root of the refugee crisis in Europe is the war in Syria, the letter reaffirms a negotiated solution to the Syrian tragedy, the importance of humanitarian assistance, and the need for the US to receive many more refugees than it does currently.
The letter concludes, "After more than four years, the Syria crisis feels intractable. But it is a human-made, political crisis. We can find a way forward, if we are willing to dedicate our collective long-term vision and energies to resolving the crisis."
