Hundreds of churches across the world are ringing funeral bells to draw attention to the suffering Syrian city of Aleppo.
CHR Comment: A Lutheran vicar in Finland, Teemu Laajasalo, started ringing the church bells to raise awareness of the immoral acts against civilians in Aleppo. More than three hundred other churches on four continents have joined in and rung their bells to raise awareness of the problems. Traditionally, church bells signal a call to pray, which is a fitting response to the atrocities in Syria. Lord, have mercy.
