So often as in the events of last week, there is an outpouring of prayer and support from different parts of the world.  For me this was clearly reflected at the Prayer Vigil at Oxford Terrace Baptist Church llast Sunday, when the following message from Elijah Taylor (https://www.bwanet.org/elijah-brown-bio), General Secretary of the Baptist World Alliance was shared:

To the many who find themselves unexpectedly confronted with injury and the loss of family and friends following the horrific attack today in Christchurch, New Zealand, the Baptist World Alliance grieves with you and will pray for you. I am grateful for the leadership and the actions of the Baptist Churches of New Zealand who offer physical solidarity today and in the days ahead. To Muslim communities who might have a heightened sense of fear, and in particular to the Al Noor and Linwood mosques in Christchurch, BWA Baptists condemn hatred and violence and pledge our prayers and relational support. On behalf of the Baptist World Alliance, with 47 million members in 125 countries and territories, I call on all people of goodwill to support religious freedom for all, reject discriminatory marginalization, and build communities who pray for one another, support one another and value the image of God found in each and every person.

I pray that this, and other messages like it from around the world, will remind us that we are not alone in either our grief at what is happening in Christchurch, nor in the mission of Christ to be salt and light to the people of this city.

 

Shalom
