Call for a Ceasefire in Israel/Palestine

Call for a Ceasefire in Israel/Palestine

We at FCNL have watched with heavy hearts as violence breaks out in Gaza, the West Bank and Israel in catastrophic proportions. We grieve over the Palestinian and Israeli lives lost, and we lift up our concern for those who have been injured and for the many living in fear for their own safety and the safety of those they love.

Drop Food, Not Bombs in Iraq

On August 8, the United States began bombing Iraq again. Decades of U.S. military intervention fomented the crisis in Iraq today, and more bombing will only mean more bloodshed and instability.
