Date: September 10, 2013

Statement from Jim Wallis, President of Sojourners, in response to President Obama’s speech on Syria:

 

“We applaud the President’s decision to pursue the new international opportunity to remove Assad’s chemical weapons and postpone military strikes. As religious leaders we are committed to the harder and more imaginative work of peacemaking, rather than falling into the old habits of war; and to focus on the priority of millions of Syrian refugees and millions more in jeopardy within the country.”
