“Where there is hatred, let me sow love”
A Statement from Christian leaders in Sudbury; February 2nd , 2017
Following the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, we, the Christian leaders from Sudbury, condemn the recent attack on our Muslim brothers in the Centre Culturel Islamique in Quebec City as they knelt in prayer. We reaffirm our commitment to strive for justice and peace and to respect the dignity of every human being. We re-commit to standing in solidarity with our Muslim neighbours.
O Lord, open my eyes
that I may see the need of others,
open my ears that I may hear their cries,
open my heart so that they need not be without comfort.
Let me not be afraid to defend the weak
because of the anger of the strong,
nor afraid to defend the poor
because of the anger of the rich.
Show me where love and hope and faith are needed,
and use me to bring them to these places.
Open my eyes and ears that I may, this coming day,
be able to do some work of peace for you. Amen.
