To The editor: Over the past few weeks, the world has seen the horrific photographs that depict the suffering and anguish that the Ukrainian people are experiencing. We’ve all read and seen the stories of families that have been torn apart, forced to leave their homes and flee for their lives. Due to the displacement of so many people, a humanitarian crisis has ensued; the likes of which Europe has not seen in nearly 80 years. Every day, more and more people are in need of our help.

As we read in Acts, when the Apostle Paul spoke to the Ephesian elders he reminded them that “In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” It is in Paul’s words that we, the members of the Mount Carmel Area Ministerium, stand with and support the people of Ukraine. The offerings received at our weekly Lenten services will be given in support of the needs of the Ukrainian people.
