In a context of confusion and flashy journalism, rigour becomes a precious value.
“Pray for the groups of various ethnic backgrounds among whom once more the seed of distrust has been sown today. Pray for peace in the midst of divisive forces”, General Secretary Thomas Bucher writes.
“What does one say when faced with such sad news from Brussels today? Should there be many words? They do not fathom the depth of suffering, pain, mourning, anxiety, fear and insecurity caused by these bomb attacks”, the General Secretary of the European Evangelical Alliance (EEA) Thomas Bucher said in a statement on Tuesday afternoon.
“The European Evangelical Alliance calls Evangelicals across Europe and across the globe to pray for the people of Brussels who have been affected by these incidents directly.”
“Do pray for the authorities who are asked to help and to protect. Pray for the groups of various ethnic backgrounds among whom once more the seed of distrust has been sown today. Pray for peace in the midst of divisive forces.”
“MAY CHRISTIANS BE A BLESSING”
The text continues: “Pray that Jesus, the Prince of Peace and risen Lord will be able to do his work among all his people and through his people.”
“May Christians throughout this continent be a blessing in these trying days. May they show something of the resurrection power of Easter as they are making their contribution in the midst of the hard to believe realities.”
