November 2nd, 2012 5:19 pm

The World Council of Church (WCC) general secretary, Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit calls for prayers for the people affected by Hurricane Sandy. In recent letters to the National Council of Churches in the United States and the Caribbean Conference of Churches Rev. Tveit says:

“I write to assure you of the prayers of the World Council of Churches for all those who have been affected, particularly those who have lost loved ones or who now find themselves without a home.” 

Tveit went on to say that “in this time of recovery when so many local churches are working together to offer emergency relief and support, we see a poignant reminder of how important the common witness and service of the ecumenical family is.”

We encourage all our friends and supporters to join WCC general secretary and to pray for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
