Crisis in Sudan and South Sudan

What's happening now; how Presbyterians can respond

Violence and turmoil in the Republic of Sudan and South Sudan are in the headlines every week. What can Presbyterians do to respond?

Join Debbie Braaksma of Presbyterian World Mission’s Africa Office for an in-depth webinar that tells you how Christians are being marginalized and persecuted in the Republic of Sudan, inter-ethnic fighting in South Sudan, and violence along the border. In the midst of these crises, you’ll find out how Presbyterians are working alongside Sudanese and South Sudanese partners to be agents of reconciliation, evangelism and justice in Africa.

Hear from a pastor of the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan and U.S. Presbyterians who are making a difference in God’s world. Most importantly, you’ll hear how you can be in prayer for our sisters and brothers in Sudan and South Sudan, and other practical ways you can support them.

Panelists include:

The Rev. Orozu Lokine Daky – Presbyterian Church of Sudan
Dr. Dave Dawson – Executive Presbyter, Shenango Presbytery
The Rev. Dr. Jefferson I. Ritchie – Associate Director for Mission, The Outreach Foundation
The Rev. Debbie Braaksma – Area Coordinator for Africa, Presbyterian World Mission

  • I would like to be a part of the discussion about South Sudan. by Dayle Bird on 05/18/2012 at 10:28 a.m.

  • Prayers are always lifted for the Sudan. Having had the opportunity to visit a mission on the border of Kenya and the Sudan my life was awakened to the struggle. Later, I had the privilege to teach some of the "Lost Boys" my knowledge broadened. Critical theological interpretations inform the mineral wars. Much prayer, compassion and engagement of the governments by all caring servants of God is needed. May we not grow weary in our pursuit of peace. Amen by Dr. McGill-Jackson on 05/16/2012 at 12:08 p.m.
