Over the last few weeks, significant international discourse has emerged concerning possible military action within Syria.? From the Arab League to Italy, responses are varied and reflect a discourse taking place both within countries, confederations and in alignment to the United Nations.
Our walk together as faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends at Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry requires from us an awareness of how their communities in the U.S. and abroad are responding to possible military action.
A variety of reflections and responses have been posted, from the Franciscans to Sojourners, some of which are linked below--as shared by the school's Dr. Michael Reid Trice and Rabbi Anson Laytner.
