Praying for the church
in Sri Lanka
Rev'd Dr Paul Goodliff, General Secretary of Churches Together in England, says,
"Churches throughout England will want to pray for the church in Sri Lanka at this time of deep sadness and grief following the terrorist attacks upon its churches. The holy season of Easter, and especially on Easter Day, when Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, has become for Christians in many parts of the world amongst the most dangerous of times. Just as its Lord was crucified, and buried, so the church is persecuted. But just as death could not keep its grip on Jesus, neither can the church of Jesus Christ be destroyed by those who wish it harm. The power of forgiveness and the courage of faith will bear witness to the Easter message the church proclaims."
