On any given day, United Methodists respond to tragedy by offering prayers and support. We recognize that sometimes it can seem the world is full of evil and it can be a challenge to keep the faith.

Below you will find resources for helping people cope with violent events; news coverage of how the church is working to respond with peace in a world of violence; and stories about how individuals as well as ministries can make a positive difference even in the most difficult of times.
