Over the last decade, the connections between our global fellowship of churches have grown all the stronger so that when tragic events such as these take place, our thoughts move beyond the headlines, and to the faces and names of our beloved friends. In the past, we have had many occasions for joy. Today is a day to grieve, pray, and suffer with our brothers and sisters in Christ. It is in moments like these that our unity is most important.
In the Anglican Church in North America some of us have known first hand what it is like to live through terrorist attacks. Today, for our Kenyan and Pakistani friends, going into the marketplace or attending worship become acts of courage. Pray that they will know the presence of the Good Shepherd by their side, and be comforted by the assurance of His rod and His staff.
