Luther condemns war against Ukraine

Martin Luther University College (Luther) joins all peace-loving people in condemning the war against Ukraine. 

“Although the war is taking place far away, members of our own community — students and faculty — have family and friends directly affected by the violence,” said Rev. Dr. Kristine Lund, the school’s principal-dean. “We offer our moral and material support to those suffering at this extremely difficult time.” 

Luther faculty and staff have made donations to Canadian Lutheran World Relief’s Ukraine Emergency Appeal, and Luther encourages its community members to also support the effort through their chosen humanitarian aid providers. 

“In this challenging time, we find hope in the leadership of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and other leaders who have demonstrated such courage and resolve to fight for democracy in Ukraine,” Lund added. “We also gain hope from the protestors in Russia who have risked their lives to speak up for the freedom of Ukraine.  

“Their courage and resolve strengthens our commitment to speak up for those being marginalized anywhere in our world so that all might experience peace, freedom and justice.” 

The public is invited to join the Luther community (online) on Monday, March 7, 12:30-12:50 p.m., to pray for peace; an end to acts of war and military aggression in Ukraine; and for humanitarian hearts that will ensure the safety and security of the people of Ukraine. Zoom link: 

Through The Delton Glebe Counselling Centre, a community service provided by Luther, the school offers counselling in person, online or via telephone for anyone in the broader community.
