Along with the Muslim community in New Zealand and around the world, we grieve the loss of human life, particularly in violation of a space of worship. We stand against forces that set human beings against each other in fear and hatred. We pray for the Spirit of peace to bring transformation, and for love to draw us together.
“And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, and never again will they learn war.” Isaiah 2:4b
