Religions for Peace in Solidarity with Indonesia

Esteemed and Beloved Colleagues in Indonesia:
Your colleagues around the world in Religions for Peace are in prayerful solidarity with you and all Indonesians after the earthquake and tsunami.


We mourn with you the loss of innocent life, as we hold all who have lost their lives and their shocked and grieving relatives in our prayers.

In this time of great hardship, we recall with gratitude the solidarity and care you have shown to so many around the world.

Trusting in the Source of Peace and Mercy and how this is known by respective traditions, I remain on behalf of all in Religions for Peace,

Yours in Solidarity and Peace,


Dr. William F. Vendley
Secretary General
