Guest post from Kviv, Bishop Malkhaz Songulashvili

I am grateful to be able to share this and letters which may follow from my friend Malkhkaz who is the Bishop of the Peace Cathedral in Tbilisi, Georgia. I retain his English spelling.

Dear Friends,

I have taken these pictures in front of St Michael’s monastery in Kiev where I am stationed now.

I will be travelling in this war torn country for two weeks. 

I hope to return to Georgia in one piece and with thousants of impressins which I will try to share with you in due course.

I have started listening to difference voices of the war the moment I crossed the Polish-Ukrainian bodrer with my friend a few days ago. I am listeming to drivers, people in the streets, clergymen from different religious traditions, shopkeepers, representatives of the youth…

In the meantime I would like to ask you to keep the brave Ukrainoan people in your prayers. My instinct is that each and everyone of us have to do what is in our powers to stop the madness of this war which claims thousands of lives and devours the recources  that should otherwise be spent in rebuilding economy, health care systems and edicatonal programs in both coutries that are involved in this fratricidal mandness!

Yours, Malkhaz
