Dear Beloved Christian Colleague in Religions for Peace:
Your sisters and brothers in Religions for Peace join me in extending heartfelt greetings for Easter. They understand that Christians around the world center their faith on the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus the Christ.
Your commitment to work through your Christian faith for the fruits of God’s Holy Peace is appreciated by all in Religions for Peace.
May the preparation for Easter and its celebration nourish your faith and renew your hope for the Peace that passes all understanding.
Yours in partnership,
Dr. William F. Vendley
